  • IPA(key): /ˈveːbən/, [ˈveː.bm̩]
  • (file)

Verb[edit]

weben (strong, third-person singular simple present webt, past tense webte or wob, past participle gewebt or gewoben, past subjunctive webte or wöbe, auxiliary haben)

  1. to weave
  2. to intertwine (to twine together)

Usage notes[edit]
