EtymologyEdit

From Old French geler, from Latin gelāre, present active infinitive of gelō.

PronunciationEdit

VerbEdit

geler

  1. to freeze
  2. (impersonal, weather) to be very cold

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 gèle rather than *il gele. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
