Usage notes[edit]

  • The word was originally masculine in Ripuarian, but is now often feminine under standard German influence.
  • In Ripuarian, the plural Söck is predominant (even with feminine gender), Socke is rarer. Moselle Franconian has only Socke.
  • The diminutive is irregular. (The expected form is *Söckelche.)
