How Do You Spell AUCH?
The German word "auch" is often a stumbling block for English speakers. It is pronounced as [aʊ̯ç], with the "ch" sound indicating a voiceless velar fricative, similar to the Scottish "loch". The spelling "auch" comes from Middle High German "ouch", which itself derives from Old High German "ouh", meaning "also" or "too". Although it may take some practice to get the pronunciation right, mastering the spelling and sound of "auch" is a key step in learning German.
