German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Ripuarian and Low Franconian Schrott ‎(scrap), which is the same word as German Schrot ‎(groats). The regional form is not, however, derived from Middle High German schrōt, but from a variant Middle High German schrāt, Middle Dutch *scraet (compare attested scrāden, an eastern variant of scrōden, whence modern Dutch schrooien).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

Schrott m ‎(genitive Schrotts or Schrottes, plural Schrotte)

  1. (usually uncountable) scrap; junk (discarded material, especially metal)
