German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German pfaht, from Latin pactum (pact). The unshifted onset p-, the feminine gender, and the contemporary plural form in -en are northern influences from German Low German and/or West Central German. In Grimm's German dictionary, the word is still treated as a masculine noun with plural Pächte; this is now obsolete.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Pacht f (genitive Pacht, plural Pachten)

  1. lease
