abaier

Old FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From the root *bau, the bark of a dog, but ultimately of unknown origin[1]

VerbEdit

abaier

  1. (of a dog) to bark

ConjugationEdit

  • This verb conjugates similarly to other verbs ending -er. However, in the present tense an extra supporting e is needed in the first-person singular indicative and throughout the singular subjunctive, and the third-person singular subjunctive ending -t is lost. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
