EtymologyEdit

From Old High German tōd, from Proto-Germanic *dauþuz. Compare Old Saxon dōth, Dutch dood, English death, Danish død.

PronunciationEdit

NounEdit

Tod m (genitive Todes or Tods, plural Tode)

  1. death

Usage notesEdit

Beyond numerous set expressions such as zum Tode verurteilt or sich zu Tode langweilen, Tod is a fairly exceptional noun in that the otherwise archaic dative-e is still applied productively to some extent, although typically with a certain preference for the undeclined variant. Accordingly, both seit seinem Tod and seit seinem Tode are possible.
