Reiz-Reisen-Riss: Ver/schiebung

The German words "Reiz" and "Reise" are related in their etymology. Both words have their roots in the Old High German language and are connected through historical linguistic development.

1. "Reiz": This word means "stimulus," "appeal," or "attraction" in English. It refers to something that arouses a reaction or a feeling. For example, if something is charming or enticing, it can be described as having a "Reiz."

2. "Reise": This word means "journey" or "trip" in English. It refers to traveling from one place to another, often for leisure, business, or exploration.

The connection between these two words lies in their common origin (skin) in the Proto-Germanic language. Both words have derived from the Proto-Germanic root "*raizijan," which meant "to move, set in motion." Over time, this root gave rise to different forms in various Germanic languages, eventually leading to "Reiz" and "Reise" in modern German.

So, while they may have different (barrier) meanings in present-day German, "Reiz" and "Reise" share a historical connection (contact) and can be traced back to the same linguistic root.
