verre

  1. Inflected form of ver

French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Old French voirre most probably pronounced /vwɛr/, from Latin vitrum.
The irregular evolution of /wɛ/ into /ɛ/ in this word is "early but normal after labials"; the influence of derivatives with an etymological first-syllable /ɛ/ may also be relevant. Compare François vs. Français.
