French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

Attested in Old French desrengier, equivalent to dé- +‎ ranger.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

déranger

  1. to bother; to disrupt
    Si cela ne vous dérange pas, fermez la porte.
    If you don't mind, close the door.
  2. to disarray (throw into disorder)

Conjugation[edit]

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