PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /kʁɔʃ.te/
  • (file)

VerbEdit

crocheter

  1. (transitive) to pick (a lock)
    J'aimerais apprendre à crocheter une serrure.
  2. (transitive, soccer, rugby) to sidestep

ConjugationEdit

This verb is conjugated mostly like the regular -er verbs (parler and chanter and so on), but the -e- /ə/ of the second-to-last syllable becomes -è- /ɛ/ when the next vowel is a silent or schwa -e-. For example, in the third-person singular present indicative, we have il crochète rather than *il crochete. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
