  • This verb conjugates like other verbs ending in -ier. These verbs are conjugated mostly like verbs in -er, but have an extra i before the e of some endings. In addition, a supporting -e is needed in the present tense, as with entrer, and g becomes j before an 'a' or an 'o' to keep the /dʒ/ sound intact.
