Etymology[edit]

From French papa.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpapa/ (commonly)

  • (file)
  • Rhymes: -apa, -aː

Noun[edit]

Papa m (strong, genitive Papas, plural Papas)

  1. dad, daddy
    Synonym: Vati

Usage notes[edit]

  • The word is commonly used with a definite article in most parts of central Germany, southern Germany, and Austria: Wo ist der Papa? – "Where is Dad?" In northern Germany—and generally in writing—no article tends to be used: Wo ist Papa?
  • The genitive Papas is used before the modified term, without any article or determiner: Papas Tasche – “Dad’s bag”. This is chiefly northern German usage; the southern German prefers the dative: die Tasche vom Papa (as above). — The genitive can also be used with an accompanying article or determiner: die Tasche meines Papas – “my dad’s bag”. This, however, is not common usage in any region; children will say instead: die Tasche von meinem Papa.
