    thus

    Kommentar
    Ich benutze dieses Wort gelegentlich im Englischen. Doch nun sagte mir jemand, der allerdings auch kein Muttersprachler ist, dass dieses Wort altmodisch wäre. Stimmt das?

    In the sensr of "therefore," I (AE) would probably use "therefore" more often than "thus," especially in speaking; but I don't consider that meaning of "thus" antiquated.

    Danke, dann kann ich es ja ohne schlechtes Gewissen weiter verwenden.

    On the other hand, "thus" does have some other meanings besides "therefore," and for those meanings it can sound antiquated.

    For example: "Lay the pieces out thus." Nowadays most people would say "Lay the peices out in this manner."

    As far as I can recall, I see it only in formal writing, which is where I might also use it. I'm pretty sure I never say it.

    I'd also use it in formal writing but not in speech, unless I wanted to sound pompous (for humorous effect) or was giving a very formal speech.

    Totally agree with #4 & 5.
    Very stuffy and antiquated in speech, but OK in formal writing.

    at the risk of sounding antiquated and stuffy, I do use "thus" and even "thusly" in speech, occasionally. Admittedly, however, mainly among friends. :-)

    Bei dem Wort fällt mir die Phrase ein: "Why this thusness?" (In dem Kontext, in dem ich es kennengelernt habe, hieß es ungefähr: Welche Laus ist Dir denn über die Leber gelaufen?)

    I would forego thusly.
