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 vier
    five to the power of four, (5⁴)


DeclensionEdit

Since intervocalic /x/ became /h/ in Old High German, the adjective now has an irregular declension. The predicative form /hoːx/ is spelled hoch today, while the Old High German spelling for the same pronunciation was hoh, but declined forms still are written hoh-, e.g. der hohe Berg ("the high mountain"), and pronounced /hoː-/ in most regions and /hoːh-/ in Switzerland.
