Usage notes[edit]

  • The word is never used in northern and central Germany. It may even—at least by less educated speakers—be misinterpreted as a synonym of heute (today). It does however occasionally mean heutigentags (nowadays) or heute (nowadays), for example:
    • 1654, Salomons von Golaw Deutscher Sinn-Getichte Drey Tausend, Breslau, p. 210, nr. [8]71 Heutige Welt-Kunst:
      [...]
      Wer sich desen wil befleissen
      Kan Politisch heuer heissen.
