Etymology[edit]

From Old French trichier, tricher, probably from Vulgar Latin *triccāre, from Late Latin tricāre, from Latin trīcārī (behave in an evasive manner, search for detours; trifle, delay), from tricae. Related to Italian treccare, Old Provençal trichar, Catalan trigar, Portuguese trigar. Alternatively possibly of ultimately Germanic origin; cf. also English trick.

Conjugation[edit]

  • This verb conjugates similarly to other verbs ending -er. However, in the present tense an extra supporting e is needed in the first-person singular indicative and throughout the singular subjunctive, and the third-person singular subjunctive ending -t is lost. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
