Etymology[edit]

From Middle French jauger, from Old French jaugier, from jauge (gauging rod), from Frankish *galga (measuring rod, pole), from Proto-Germanic *galgô (pole, stake, cross), from Proto-Indo-European *g'hAlgh-, *g'hAlg- (perch, long switch); see also jauge. More at gauge.

Related terms[edit]

Conjugation[edit]

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