  1. to have
    Il o unne voèture fort bèle !

Usage notesEdit

Unlike standard French, Picard has extended the use of avoèr as an auxiliary verb to all verbs, replacing the use of ète in reflexive and movement verbs. However, and due to the influence of standard French, you may see il est sorti ("he has come out") or il s'est foait ("he has done himself") instead of normal Picard syntax il o sorti and il s'o foait.
