Etymology

From Middle High German r?ch, from Old High German r?h, from Proto-Germanic *r?hwaz. Though etymologically justified, the Dehnungs-h was abolished in 1996 because rauh was the only word in which it was used after the diphthong -au-. Cognate with Dutch ruig and ruw, English rough (which see).

Pronunciation

  • IPA(key): /?a/
  • (file)

Adjective

rau (comparative rauer, superlative am rausten)

  1. rough
    • 2010, Der Spiegel, issue 26/2010, page 125:
      Tiere, die in rauem Klima leben, sind oft klüger als ihre Artgenossen aus gemäßigten Breiten, das legen verschiedene Studien nahe.
      Several studies suggest that animals which live in rough climates are often smarter than members of the same species from moderate latitudes.
