EtymologyEdit

From en- +‎ nuage +‎ -er.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ɑ̃.nɥa.ʒe/
  • (file)

VerbEdit

ennuager

  1. to cloud over (become cloudy)

ConjugationEdit

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