French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French plongier, from Vulgar Latin *plumbicare, from Latin plumbum.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

plonger

  1. to dive
  2. to plunge

Conjugation[edit]

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