German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old High German haso, from Proto-Germanic *hasô, from an Indo-European root originally meaning grey.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

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

  1. hare (animal of either sex)
  2. (astronomy) the constellation Lepus

Usage notes[edit]

  • While English-speakers tend to mistakenly use the word “rabbit” for hares, the German tendency is reverse: Hase is sometimes mistakenly used instead of Kaninchen, and it is generally the preferred word whenever the distinction is irrelevant or impossible to tell. (For example, a bunny girl is a Häschen in German, never a Kaninchen.)
