- bewußt (superseded)
- (often with dative reflexive pronoun and genitive object) conscious, aware
- Ja, ich war mir dieser Tatsache bewusst.
- Yes, I was aware of that fact.
- bewusste Täuschung ― intentional deception
- → Dutch: bewust
The spelling bewusst has been the prescribed spelling since the German spelling reform of 1996 (the Rechtschreibreform). In Switzerland and Liechtenstein, it had already been standard since ⟨ß⟩ was deprecated in the 1930s. In the affected areas, the previous spelling (bewußt) is now less common, and may be regarded as a misspelling.
