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: regularized (du flechtest, er flechtet) and traditional (du flichtst, er flicht). Only the traditional forms are standard, and they remain favoured in literary German, but are rare in the vernacular and might even be unintelligible to many less educated speakers.
