Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /klik.te/, /kli.kə.te/

Verb[edit]

cliqueter

  1. (intransitive) to jingle, rattle, clink

Conjugation[edit]

  • 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 cliquète rather than *il cliquete. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
  • With the exception of appeler, jeter and their derived verbs, all verbs that used to double the consonants can also now be conjugated like amener.
