Streit

GermanEdit

EtymologyEdit

Old High German strīt

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

Streit m (genitive Streits or Streites, plural Streite or Streits)

  1. quarrel, dispute, fight

Usage notesEdit

Both existing plural forms are not really common. In formal German, Streitigkeiten is normally used instead. Streite is listed in some dictionaries, but quite unfrequent. Streits is a recent innovation (probably on the model of Streiks), which has become common in colloquial German, but would be considered incorrect in the standard.
