  1. cheerful
  2. fair (weather)

Declension[edit]

Broom icon.svg A user suggests that this entry be cleaned up giving the reason: "As there are contracted comparative forms with the stem heitr- (e.g. heitrerer), and as there is no contracted form without ending (*heitr) and as there is only the positive predicative form heiter, the contracted positive forms (e.g. heitrer) do belong into this entry too, but they are missing here.".
Please see the discussion on Requests for cleanup(+) for more information and remove this template after the problem has been dealt with.
