Serbo-Croatian[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Proto-Slavic *krьstъ, ultimately from Latin crux (cruci), "cross, stake" or crio "torment". The Slavic suffix "t" is possibly influenced by Ancient Greek Χριστός ‎(Khristós).

Pronunciation[edit]

Noun[edit]

kȑst m (Cyrillic spelling кр̏ст)

  1. (Serbia, Bosnia) cross, crucifix (also figuratively)

Declension[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

This word, in a religious context, is used mainly by Orthodox Christians, and consequently generally more common among Serbs than Croats. Catholics (and Croats generally) tend to prefer the term krȋž.
