I'm never quite sure about this word, white or even white comes from knowledge. So I would write it with "s" and not with "ß". The spell checker in MS Word criticizes this every time. However, my teachers don't. For me that means, conversely, the word is written with "s" and not with "ß". So I would be interested in what you say about it and why your answer is justified.

In my opinion, as I said, it is written with an "s". But I would like to know what you think of it and why. Because who knows maybe everyone has a different view of this word.

You write it with ß, of course. It is not my opinion - it is so.

I do not understand the conclusion that you can write it with s because it comes from knowledge. White is also a diffraction form of knowledge, and of course you write that with two, not just one s.

The only question left is why it is written with ß and not with ss. Well that's easy:
1) In Adelung's S spelling, there is never an ss at the end of the word.
2) In Heysian S spelling, a diphthong always follows ß, never ss.

"I'll show you the way" is written with just one s.

But I have two views:
1) Terrifying that you can become a teacher without basic spelling skills.
2) Spell Checkers can't check spelling because they don't understand the meaning and it's essential to spelling. But MS Word is still right in this case.

It depends on the words that come after or in front of it. When I write, "I know that I know a lot", the word must be spelled with "ß". It also has to use a "ß" because it is preceded by a vowel.

How is a word supposed to influence whether you write another with s or ß? Even a self-vowel is not a criterion for this, otherwise one would have to write: Oßten, hate, leßen, rotlich.

The criterion is the "ei", ie the double sound before the "S sound".

Therefore both "I know" and the farbe "The wall is white" written with a "ß".

That is why both "I know" and "The wall is white" are written with a "ß".
Mostly, tearing, tearing? Whether vowel, double, consonant: it is only about the conversion from one s-spelling to the other.

It is a form of "knowing", not of "showing (the way)", so it is clear to me: "I know" is correct. In Cecilia Ahern's epistolary novel "Forever Maybe", the mistake "I know" is a running gag, one of the main characters writes it wrong and is constantly corrected; maybe you can remember the spelling better if you are unsure after reading the book?
