Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle High German kosten, from Old French coster, from Latin cōnstō.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈkɔstən/
  • Hyphenation: kos‧ten; pre-1996: ko‧sten

Verb[edit]

kosten (weak, third-person singular present kostet, past tense kostete, past participle gekostet, auxiliary haben)

  1. to cost
Conjugation[edit]
Usage notes[edit]
  • While elision of the ending -et is now dialectal or poetic in most other verbs, it remains common in colloquial speech with kosten. Thus one will hear /kɔst/ for kostet and, slightly less often, /ɡəkɔst/ for gekostet. These may be spelt kost't, kost, and gekost't, gekost.

Etymology 2[edit]

From Old High German kostōn, from Proto-Germanic *kustōną. More at costen.
