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 is quite uncommon. Streits is a recent innovation (probably on the model of Streiks), which has become common in colloquial German, but would be considered incorrect in standard language.
