Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

rougir

  1. (intransitive) to redden, blush
    • 1845, Alexandre Dumas, Le Comte de Monte-Cristo, page 52:
      — Le mari, le mari, dit Caderousse en riant, pas encore, mon capitaine ; essaye un peu de faire le mari, et tu verras comme tu seras reçu !
      Mercédès rougit.
      "Husband, husband," said Caderousse laughing, "not yet, my captain; just try to act as a husband, and you will see how you will be received!"
      Mercedes blushed.

Conjugation[edit]

  • This is a regular verb of the second conjugation, like finir, choisir, and most other verbs with infinitives ending in -ir. One salient feature of this conjugation is the repeated appearance of the infix -iss-.
