German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Cognate to Dutch lekker.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

lecker (comparative leckerer or leckrer, superlative am leckersten)

  1. yummy, tasty
    Das ist ein sehr leckerer Keks.
    This is a very tasty biscuit.
  2. (regional, West Central German, usually uninflected) pretty, attractive (woman or man)
    Sie ist ein lecker Mädchen.
    She's an attractive girl.

Usage notes[edit]

  • Unlike Dutch lekker, the German word does not commonly refer to things other than tastiness and physical attractiveness.
  • The contracted comparative leckrer is per se rare, but more commonly seen in the inflected forms leckrere, leckrerer, and so on (in order to avoid the three reduced syllables and the reduplication in leckerere, leckererer).

lecker
