Verb[edit]

surcharger

  1. (transitive) to overcharge
  2. (transitive) to overload, overburden, overcrowd
  3. (transitive) to surcharge

Conjugation[edit]

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