German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Old High German strīt

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Streit m (genitive Streits or Streites, plural Streite or Streits)

  1. quarrel, dispute, fight

Usage notes[edit]

Both existing plural forms are not really common. In formal German, Streitigkeiten is normally used instead. Streite is listed in some dictionaries, but quite unfrequent. Streits is a recent innovation (probably on the model of Streiks), which has become common in colloquial German, but would be considered incorrect in the standard.
