Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

maudire

  1. (transitive) to curse

Conjugation[edit]

  • This is almost a regular verb of the second conjugation, like finir, choisir, and most other verbs with infinitives ending in -ir. Its only irregularities are in the past participle, which is maudit(e)(s) rather than *maudi(e)(s), and in the infinitive, which is maudire rather than *maudir.
