German[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From the noun Röntgen (X-ray), with -en reinterpreted as the infinitive ending of a verb.

Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ˈrœntɡən/, /ˈrœntçən/
  • (file)

Verb[edit]

röntgen (third-person singular simple present röntgt, past tense röntgte, past participle geröntgt, auxiliary haben)

  1. to X-ray

Conjugation[edit]

Usage notes[edit]

The unusual stop cluster in this word is often simplified to having a fricative instead, producing a pronunciation like [ʁœntç-]. This simplification is not limited to those (northern and central German) accents that feature or featured a merger of g and ch in initial or coda position. In the dialects which do feature a merger of final -g and -ch, this pronunciation of röntgen is also not necessarily limited to forms where the cluster is in the coda.
