Pronunciation[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Middle Dutch vucht, vocht. Substantivized form of an identical adjective, from Old Dutch *fuhti (humid, wet, damp; marsh-like), from Proto-Germanic *funhtijaz (humid, wet, damp). In Middle Dutch the word gradually shifted from being an adjective to being a noun, with the old adjective being replaced by vochtig (humid, wet).

Cognate with Old English fuht (moist, damp) and German feucht (wet, humid, damp).
