German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German jenner, from Late Latin. Thus, Jänner is an etymologically older form, whereas Januar is a secondary learned approximation of the Latin original.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Jänner m (genitive Jänners, plural Jänner)

  1. (Austria) Alternative form of Januar (January).

Usage notes[edit]

The word is restricted to Austria and South Tyrol, but remains the standard and most common form in these areas. (This is in contrast to the also Austrian Feber, which is now commonly replaced with Februar.)
