EtymologyEdit

avantage +‎ -er

VerbEdit

avantager

  1. (transitive) to favour
  2. to give an advantage to

ConjugationEdit

This is a regular -er verb, but the stem is written avantage- 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.
