Central Franconian[edit]

Alternative forms[edit]

  • kurt (other dialects of Ripuarian)
  • kurz, korz (Moselle Franconian)

Etymology[edit]

From Old High German kurt, from Latin curtus. The word was borrowed around the time when the High German consonant shift ceased to be active, which explains the Old High German doublets kurt and kurz. The fact that within Central Franconian the t-sound is northern, may imply that it has been reinforced by Low Franconian and Low German influence.
