Etymology edit

From the infinitive suffix -er along with ai ("I have")

Pronunciation edit

Suffix edit


  1. forms the first-person singular future of regular -er verbs

Usage notes edit

  • This is commonly pronounced as /-(ə).ʁɛ/ in the northern half of France, which does otherwise contrast /e/ and /ɛ/ in final open syllables, making the form homophonous with the first-person singular conditional. The distinction is also lost in the south, where the two sounds are in complementary distribution, /e/ occurring in open syllables and /ɛ/ in closed syllables.
