  • (file)


LKW m (genitive LKW or LKWs, plural LKW or LKWs)

Usage notes[edit]

  • The plural often takes no ending in formal standard German because of a general tendency to avoid endings in acronyms. In normal speech, however, -s is only rarely omitted.
  • The spelling LKW’s with an apostrophe for the genitive and plural is non-official and non-standard, but is sometimes seen.
