Icelandic[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old Norse hugr.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

hugur m (genitive singular hugar, nominative plural hugir)

  1. mind, thought
  2. desire, interest
  3. zeal, (strong) spirit
  4. courage

Declension[edit]

The singular dative definite is rare; in cases where it could be used the corresponding form (huganum) of the weak synonym hugi is preferred. That word is also generally more common in singular oblique cases.
