The German noun 'Minute' translates to 'minute' in English. It is a unit of time measurement that represents one-sixtieth of an hour or 60 seconds. The word 'minute' comes from the Latin word 'minuta', which means 'small' or 'short'. In everyday usage, a minute is often used to refer to a short period of time.

In Germany, the word 'Minute' is commonly used in various contexts. For example, it is frequently used when talking about time, such as asking someone to wait for a few minutes or discussing the duration of an event. Additionally, 'Minute' is also used in sports, particularly in football (soccer), to describe a goal scored during the last moments of a match.

It's important to note that in German, the word 'Minute' is feminine and its plural form is 'Minuten'. When using the word in a sentence, it should be preceded by the appropriate article ('die Minute' for singular and 'die Minuten' for plural). Understanding the concept of time and being familiar with how to express minutes can greatly enhance communication in German-speaking countries.
