Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin doctor.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈdɔktoːr/, [ˈdɔk.toːɐ̯], [-tɔɐ̯] (standard)
  • IPA(key): /ˈdɔktər/, [ˈdɔk.tɐ] (variant in common speech)
  • (file)

Noun[edit]

Doktor m (mixed or strong, genitive Doktors, plural Doktoren or (colloquial) Doktor or (archaic) Doktores, feminine Doktorin)

  1. (academia) doctor
  2. (medicine, informal) doctor, physician

Usage notes[edit]

  • The normal plural is Doktoren. The unchanged form Doktor is colloquial and used only with the pronunciation in [-ɐ]. The form Doktores is archaic.
  • The German word is understood to mean “medical doctor” if the context hints at that, e.g. Du musst mal zum Doktor gehen. (You have to see a doctor.) Unlike in English, however, this is not the case if the context is more general: Mein Vater ist Doktor. (My father has a PhD/doctorate). The common word for “medical doctor” is Arzt.
