    Hammock Multinlingual

    Since this is the ultimate Hammock Forum...thought maybe we could include the meaning as well as what other people around the world call the Hammock.


    Hammock [ˈhӕmək] noun
    a long piece of netting, canvas etc hung up by the corners and used as a bed, eg in a ship

    ham·mock 1 (hām'ək) Pronunciation Key
    n. A hanging, easily swung length of canvas or heavy netting suspended between two trees or other supports and used as a seat or bed.

    The German doesn't really need the die. That is there to tell you that it is a single hammock (it also tells you the word is female).
