What does the term "entschuldegung" mean?


Answer by  Phil97 (569)

Entchuldegung, which is a German word and an alternative spelling for entschuldigung, is an interjection, which means "Pardon (or excuse) me! " It is used as Americans use that phrase: when one wants to be excused for a mistake or a faux pas. The term is also the German noun which means excuse or apology.

Entschuldigung is German in origin. The usage I'm most familiar with is "entschuldigungen Sie mir bitte" which translated to English means "excuse me please".
