German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German dunst, tunst, from Old High German tunst, from Proto-Germanic *dunstą (mist, dust, evaporation). The onset d- is already predominant in Middle High German, thus due to irregular re-voicing. The expected form tunst disappears in early modern German under the reinforcing influence of Central and Low German (compare Middle Low German dūst, from Old Saxon thunst).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Dunst m (genitive Dunstes, plural Dünste)

  1. haze
