Etymology[edit]

Irregular formation from beamt (holding an office) +‎ -in (suffix for female nouns). The regular female nominalisation of beamt is Beamte, the suffix -in is not normally attached to nominalisations from adjectives.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /bəˈʔamtɪn/
  • (file)
  • Hyphenation: Be‧am‧tin

Noun[edit]

Beamtin f (genitive Beamtin, plural Beamtinnen, male Beamter)

  1. civil servant, public servant (female)

Usage notes[edit]

While this term violates standard German grammar, it is the form usually used in legal texts, having replaced the proper female form of Beamter, Beamte.
