German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old High German sniwan.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): [ˈʃnaɪən]
  • Hyphenation: schnei‧en

Verb[edit]

schneien (third-person singular simple present schneit, past tense schneite, past participle geschneit, auxiliary haben)

  1. to snow

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

Rarely used in any person other than third person singular with the subject es.

Can be inflected as a strong verb in Upper German dialects (Alemannic and Bavarian), with the past participle geschnien. These dialects do not use the simple past, so a *schnie is presumably unattested.


Luxembourgish[edit]

Verb[edit]
