Usage notes[edit]

  • The German word is commonly used only for more richly filled sandwiches, typically with salad and sauce, normally featuring toasted bread or a bread roll. Plainer variants with traditional German bread go by a variant of regional German names like Stulle. Variants with a bread roll often go simply by Brötchen (bread roll).
  • The noun is generally neuter, but may be treated as masculine by some speakers.
  • The inflected forms above are loosely ordered by frequency. The plural is usually Sandwiches in formal writing, but the two alternative plurals are equally frequent in common usage.
