PronunciationEdit

SuffixEdit

-re

  1. One of the three main verb endings, along with -er and -ir.

Usage notesEdit

  • Technically, -re is not a suffix or even a verb ending proper, as it is always part of a wider pattern in -dre, -ttre, -ire etc., and is only used as such for its practical aspect, as it groups verbs of very different conjugations, and several verbs of the third group do not end in -re.
