EtymologyEdit

From Old French semer, from Latin sēmināre, present active infinitive of sēminō.

PronunciationEdit

  • IPA(key): /sə.me/
  • (file)

VerbEdit

semer

  1. to sow (scatter seed, etc.)
  2. to shake off someone
  3. (figuratively) to spread
    semer la zizanie, semer la pagaille, semer la terreur(please add an English translation of this usage example)

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