Usage notesEdit

  • The word Doktor is understood to mean "medical doctor" if the context hints at that, e.g. Du musst mal zum Doktor gehen – "You have to see a doctor". Unlike in English, however, this is not the case if the context is more general: Mein Vater ist Doktor – "My father has a PhD/doctorate". The common word for "medical doctor" is Arzt.
