Etymology[edit]

From Old Danish Arus, from Old Norse Áróss, a compound of á (river) +‎ óss (mouth). The first part of the word is an old genitive of Danish å (small river) (from Proto-Indo-European *h₂ekʷeh₂ (water), related to Latin aqua (water)). The latter part is a (now obsolete) word for "river mouth", os (from Proto-Indo-European *h₁éh₃(o)s (mouth), related to Latin os (mouth)). The name has been assimilated to the word hus (house).

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ɔːrhuːˀs/, [ˈɒːhuˀs], [ˈɒːhus]

Proper noun[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

Following the spelling reform of 1948, the name was changed from Aarhus to Århus, which remained the spelling preferred by local authorities until 2010, when the city council decided to change the name back to Aarhus, effective from the 1st of January 2011. According to the official rules of Danish orthography, it is still valid to write Århus, although Aarhus is far more prevalent in road signs, media, etc.
