EtymologyEdit

Origin obscure. No known cognates in other Romance languages. Perhaps from Vulgar Latin *reexvagus, or related to Old French desver (to wander). Alternatively, possibly of Germanic origin: compare Frankish *rāswan (to consider, suppose, conjecture); Old Norse ráfa (to wander, roam).

VerbEdit

resver

  1. to hallucinate; to be delirious
  2. to wander about

ConjugationEdit

This verb conjugates as a first-group verb ending in -er. In the present tense an extra supporting e is needed in the first-person singular indicative and throughout the singular subjunctive, and the third-person singular subjunctive ending -t is lost. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
