TranslationsEdit


FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

From Old French forger, forgier, from Latin fabricāre, present active infinitive of fabricō.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

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.

From Latin fabrico.

VerbEdit

forger

  1. Alternative form of forgier.

ConjugationEdit

  • This verb conjugates like a verb ending in -er. In addition, a supporting -e is needed in the present tense, as with entrer, and g becomes j before an 'a' or an 'o' to keep the /dʒ/ sound intact. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
