Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German has(e), from Old High German haso, from Proto-West Germanic *hasō, from Proto-Germanic *hasô, from an Indo-European root originally meaning grey.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈhaːzə/
  • Rhymes: -aːzə
  • (file)

Noun[edit]

Hase m (genitive Hasen, plural Hasen, diminutive Häschen n or Häslein n, female Häsin)

  2. (astronomy) the constellation Lepus

Usage notes[edit]

  • While English speakers tend to mistakenly use the word “rabbit” for hares, the German tendency is the reverse: Hase is sometimes mistakenly used instead of Kaninchen, and it tends to be the preferred word whenever the distinction is irrelevant or impossible to tell (for example, a bunny girl is a Häschen in German and the Easter bunny is called Osterhase).
