Etymology[edit]

From English bachelor.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈbɛ.t͡ʃə.lɐ/ (official standard)
  • IPA(key): /ˈbɛt͡ʃ.lɐ/ (more common)

Noun[edit]

Bachelor m (genitive Bachelors or Bachelor, plural Bachelor or Bachelors)

  1. bachelor's degree
  2. bachelor graduate

Usage notes[edit]

  • The unchanged plural (die) Bachelor is in practice more common than (die) Bachelors, the form officially recognized by the Duden. The plural is often, however, avoided in writing by means of using a compound word (Bachelorabschlüsse or Bachelorabsolventen, depending on the sense). This is particularly so in the dative plural, where the form (den) Bachelorn—although perfectly acceptable in speech—may be considered disturbing to the eye.

Declension[edit]

Unchanged plural
S-plural
