comment Words where changing “ß” to “ss” changes the meaning, e.g., “Maßen” to “Massen”
The question is when considering ß→ss , when will it change the meaning of the word. If so, please explain using an example or two and does that phenomenon only happen for some words, if there's a reason why it happens, it would be nice. It's more about the usage of ß→ss more than the rules that governs it.

Change the question accordingly but it's necessary to know if there are rules and whether this is an isolated case =)
