Usage notesEdit

  • Joghurt is one of the few German words that can be used in all three genders (others are Dschungel and Wimpel). In Germany, it is most commonly masculine; rarely, it is neuter. In Switzerland and Austria, it is most commonly neuter; around Vienna, it is feminine.
  • When the word is masculine or neuter, its genitive is usually Joghurts. Very rarely, Joghurtes is found.
  • Some references, such as the Digitales Wörterbuch der deutschen Sprache, do not recognize the term as having a plural; nonetheless, one is attested (Joghurts).
