No. It is irregular due to the faux-French/broken-French pronunciation in English. --Connel MacKenzie 06:09, 13 October 2007 (UTC)

Somebody find an antonym for this word! Clammybells

EtymologyEdit

This section says : "From French rendez-vous, from rendez, second person plural, imperative, of se rendre ‎(“to go (to)”) + vous ‎(“you”)." It's actually a mistake to say that "rendez-vous" is the equivalent of "se rendre" (second person plural, imperative) + "vous", since it's just the second person plural, imperative of "se rendre" and that's it. "Rendre" becomes "rendez" and "se" becomes "vous". I'm not sure I can phrase it correctly in english, I can try if someone wants to. --90.73.237.56 01:58, 26 September 2016 (UTC)
