outrage +‎ -er

Verb[edit]

outrager

  1. to offend greatly, insult
  2. to outrage

Conjugation[edit]

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