EtymologyEdit

From Old High German hōh, Proto-Germanic *hauhaz, from Proto-Indo-European *kewk-, a suffixed form of *kew-. Compare Dutch hoog, English high, Swedish hög.

PronunciationEdit

AdjectiveEdit

hoch (comparative höher, superlative am höchsten)

  1. high, tall
  2. large, big, heavy
  3. grand, important
  4. (mathematics) to the power of
    fünf hoch drei
    five to the power of three

DeclensionEdit

Since intervocalic /h/ became mute in the late Middle Ages, the adjective now has an irregular declension. The predicative form is hoch (Old High German spelling hoh), but declined forms use the stem hoh-, e.g. der hohe Berg ("the high mountain"). The comparative and superlative degrees are höher and am höchsten, respectively.
