Verb[edit]

brauch

  1. Imperative singular of brauchen.
  2. (colloquial) First-person singular present of brauchen.
  3. (colloquial) Third-person singular present of brauchen.

Usage notes[edit]

  • The endingless form er/sie brauch for the 3rd singular (instead of braucht) is formed by analogy with other modal verbs (compare er kann, er soll, etc.). It is considered nonstandard in written style, but quite common colloquially.
