déloger

FrenchEdit

EtymologyEdit

dé- +‎ loger

PronunciationEdit

  • (file)

VerbEdit

déloger

  1. (intransitive) to move out (of e.g. a house)
  2. (transitive) to kick out, expel (from e.g. a house)
  3. (transitive) to dislodge

ConjugationEdit

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