French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Middle French, from Old French forsener (to be mad with rage) (compare Old French forsenede (one who has lost his mind)), from for- + sen (sense, reason, mind), from Frankish *sinn, *sinno (sense, mind, judgement), from Proto-Germanic *sinnaz (sense, mind, wisdom, meaning), from Proto-Indo-European *sent- (to feel). Cognate with German Sinn (sense, meaning, mind), Dutch zin (sense, desire). Related to asséner. More at sense.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

forcener

  1. to become enraged

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 forcène rather than *il forcene. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
