EtymologyEdit

From Latin sortīrī, present active infinitive of sortior, possibly influenced by a derivative of surgere, surrectus. Compare Italian sortire, compare also Spanish surtir.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

sortir

  1. (intransitive) To exit, go out, come out.
    Je suis sorti de l'école.
    I came out of school.
  2. (transitive) To take out, bring out.
    En sortant mes crayons, je les ai accidentellement répands partout.
    In taking out my pencils, I accidentally spilled them everywhere.

ConjugationEdit

  • This verb uses the auxiliary être when intransitive (as in Elle est sortie, “She went out”), and the auxiliary avoir when transitive (as in Elle a sorti un crayon, “She took out a pencil”).
  • This is one of a fairly large group of irregular -ir verbs that are all conjugated the same way. Other members of this group include partir and dormir. The biggest difference between these verbs' conjugation and that of the regular -ir verbs is that these verbs' conjugation does not use the infix -iss-. Further, this conjugation has the forms (je, tu) sors and (il) sort in the present indicative and imperative, whereas a regular -ir verb would have *sortis and *sortit (as in the past historic).
