- mouth of a person
- Maul, mouth of an animal
From an earlier Munt, from Proto-Germanic *mundō. The retention of /d/ in the combination /nd/ is a signature of northern High German dialects and only becomes widespread after a period in the Middle Ages where the southern reflex /nt/ is favoured in southern writings.
Mund f (genitive Mund, plural Munde)
- Due to conflation with the masculine noun, combined nouns based on this one are also masculine.
