EtymologyEdit

From Old French juger, from Latin iūdicō (pass judgement).

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /ʒy.ʒe/

juger

  1. (law) To judge, to try
  2. (in general) To judge, to deem
    Ne savez-vous pas que nous jugerons les anges?
    Do you not know that we will judge angels?

ConjugationEdit

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