    • 2002, James R. Delisle, Barefoot Irreverence (page 178)
      In either arrangement, the teacher reserves personal judgment and acts more as a bridger of student ideas or as an encourager of reluctant participants (vocal participation, though, should always be the student's prerogative).

French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From English.

Verb[edit]

bridger

  1. (intransitive) to play bridge (the card game)

Conjugation[edit]

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