German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

The Middle Low German word pūsten (ultimately from an onomatopoeic Proto-Indo-European root) was borrowed into Middle High German and is attested a few times 1300–1500, but became rare; modern German may have reborrowed the term from modern German Low German rather than preserving the Middle High German borrowing.[1][2]

  • IPA(key): /ˈpuːstən/, [ˈpʰuːstn̩]
  • Hyphenation: pus‧ten
