forger

  1. to forge
  2. (figuratively) to forge, to conceive

ConjugationEdit

  • This is a regular -er verb, but the stem is written forge- before endings that begin with -a- or -o- (to indicate that the -g- is a “soft” /ʒ/ and not a “hard” /ɡ/). This spelling-change occurs in all verbs in -ger, such as neiger and manger.

Old FrenchEdit

From Latin fabrico.

forger

  1. Alternative form of forgier.

ConjugationEdit

  • This verb is part of an group of -er verbs, for which ‘g’ is softened to a ‘j’ before the vowels ‘a’ and ‘o’ to keep the /dʒ/ sound in tact. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
