  • IPA(key): /ɡəˈʃʁiːən/, /ɡəˈʃʁiːn/


geschrien (past participle, infinitive schreien)

  1. past participle of schreien

Usage notesEdit

  • The spelling geschrien is new as of 1996 per the German spelling reform of 1996 (the Rechtschreibreform). In the affected areas, the previous spelling (geschrieen) is now less common, and may be regarded as a misspelling.
  • The trisyllabic pronunciation indicated above is still the more regular pronunciation of the word, since inflected forms ending in -ien are normally pronounced [iːən] (compare Melodien). The disyllabic pronunciation is also correct, however.
