Alternative forms

edit

Colloquial forms are

  • fuffzehn [ˈfʊft͡seːn] in northern and central Germany;
  • fuchzehn [ˈfʊxt͡seːn] in southern Germany and Austria.

These forms are frequent in pronunciation, but rare in writing, the more so as numerals above 12 are usually not written out in German texts.
