VerbEdit

envisager

  1. to envisage; to contemplate.
    J'envisage de partir demain matin
    I intend to leave tomorrow morning

ConjugationEdit

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