Usage notes[edit]

  • Natural use of Türe in spoken language is found in parts of Central Germany (almost exclusively in Saxony) and western Switzerland. It is notable that at the same time Saxony overall prefers Tür in written language.
  • In parts of Austria, southern Germany, and western Germany, Türe is commonly found on signs, such as: Türe geschlossen halten. — “Keep door shut.” This is in spite of the fact that the form is now quite rare in edited texts and moreover is not used in the respective regional vernaculars.[1]
