German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

First attested in the 17th century and hence hardly inherited within High German. Probably from Middle Low German schörte, from Old Saxon *skurtia, from Proto-Germanic *skurtijǭ; adapted to the High German consonantism by conflation with related Late Middle High German schurz (modern German Schurz), a nominalisation of the adjective schurz (short), from Old High German schurz, from Proto-Germanic *skurtaz. Cognate with English shirt and short, respectively.

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Schürze f (genitive Schürze, plural Schürzen)
