Usage notes[edit]
  • The plural is extremely rare. It could only be used in the sense of “different kinds of cough” and (doubtfully) “different periods of illness involving cough”.
  • The diminutive is perhaps originally that of Huster (an instance of coughing), but it also substitutes the diminutive of Husten, e.g. in the sense of “a slight affection by cough”.
