Old FrenchEdit

Alternative formsEdit


From Late Latin captiāre, present active infinitive of captiō (I capture), from Latin captō. Compare Old French chacier.



  1. (transitive, intransitive) to hide
    • circa 1155, Wace, Le Roman de Brut:
      Guendoliene fu iriee
      De ce qu'ensi en fu caciee
      Gwendoline was furious
      about what was hidden


  • This verb conjugates like other verbs ending in -ier. These verbs are conjugated mostly like verbs in -er, but have an extra i before the e of some endings. In addition, c becomes ç before an 'a' or an 'o'. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
