    Hausverstand

    Context/ examples
    Anyone heard of the expression 'Hausverstand'. I think it's Austrian for commonsense but am not 1oo per cent sure.

    You're right there. 'Gesunder Hausverstand' = 'Gesunder Menschenverstand' = 'common sense'.

    After speaking about "Hausverstand" with my Austrian colleagues, it is clear that "nous" or "gumption" are most approriate.

    Sorry! "Commonsense" is just as good, and is simpler
