Etymology[edit]

From Middle High German vlehten, from Old High German flehtan, from Proto-Germanic *flehtaną.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

flechten (class 3 strong, third-person singular simple present flicht or flechtet, past tense flocht, past participle geflochten, past subjunctive flöchte, auxiliary haben)

  1. (transitive) to plait; to braid; to weave

Usage notes[edit]

  • For the 2nd and 3rd person singular there are two sets of forms: regular (du flechtest, er flechtet) and traditional (du flichtst, er flicht). The regular forms are overall more common. The traditional ones remain favoured in literary German but may easily be unintelligible to less educated speakers.
