- Wank (Ripuarian; now chiefly western dialects)
- (many dialects) wall
- The plural Wänn is used in Moselle Franconian and some southern dialects of Ripuarian. The form Wäng is used in many Ripuarian dialects, including Kölsch.
Wand f (genitive Wand, plural Wände)
- The words Wand and Mauer were distinguished in the following manner:
Wand is the general term and Mauer the specific one for mineralic (stone, concrete) walls (e.g. not for a wall built from wood). Therefore most freestanding walls are a Mauer because of the necessary static needs but not all (e.g. a freestanding wall made of wood is no Mauer but a Wand). The term Mauer also is used for mineralic walls caused by natural forces like the charateristic leveés or embankments of a Hangmure fallen down from the slopes of a mountain ("mu(u)r" being the spelling of High German Mauer in Middle High German and even today of German dialects in Switzerland).
