what is difference between Spazieren and Spaziergang?
Wir gehen mit ihnen spazieren. can we say this same sentence with 'Spaziergang'. is these words are interchangeable?
Please help me understand the difference between Spazieren and Spaziergang.
They describe the same. When on a "Spaziergang" you do "spazieren". Think of the difference of "to be on a walk" and "to walk". "Der Spaziergang" is a noun. "Wir machen mit ihnen einen Spaziergang", "Ich bin auf einem langen Spaziergang". "Ich mag Spaziergänge"". All fine. The verb is used like: "wir spazieren" or more common "ich gehe spazieren". "Er spazierte durch den Park".
"Wir machen mit ihnen einen Spaziergang"
While "spazieren" is the verb (the act of doing it) "der Spaziergang" is the noun or, generally speaking, the thing itself. It is like a game (the thing) and playing ("doing" the game)
spazieren = Zeitwort
Das Spazieren = Hauptwort
Spaziergang = Hauptwort
I didn't know that a verb is Zeitword in German. But "das Verb" is also used.
