Etymology[edit]

From Old High German hōh, Proto-Germanic *hauhaz, from Proto-Indo-European *kewk-, a suffixed form of *kew-. Compare Dutch hoog, English high, Swedish hög.

Pronunciation[edit]

Adjective[edit]

hoch (comparative höher, superlative am höchsten)

  1. high, tall
  2. large, big, heavy
  3. grand, important
  4. (mathematics) to the power of
    fünf hoch vier
    five to the power of four, (5⁴)

Declension[edit]

Since intervocalic /h/ became mute in the late Middle Ages, the adjective now has an irregular declension. The predicative form is hoch (Old High German spelling hoh), but declined forms use the stem hoh-, e.g. der hohe Berg ("the high mountain"). The comparative and superlative degrees are höher and am höchsten, respectively.
