EtymologyEdit

From Old High German sturm (storm), from Proto-Germanic *sturmaz, from Proto-Indo-European *(s)twer-, *(s)tur- (to rotate, swirl, twirl, move around). Compare Luxembourgish Stuerm, Low German Storm, Dutch storm, English storm, Danish storm, Icelandic stormur.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ʃtʊʁm/
  • (file)

NounEdit

Sturm m (genitive Sturms or Sturmes, plural Stürme)

  1. A strong, blustery wind; gust; gale; squall
  2. Storm, tempest
  3. (military) Storm, rush, attack

Usage notesEdit

  • Unlike English storm, the German word is not associated with rainfall. A Sturm may, of course, be accompanied by rainfall, but the word as such refers only to strong winds.
