French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin affligere.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

affliger

  1. to grieve, distress
  2. (literary) to smite (de with)

Conjugation[edit]

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