Conjugation[edit]

This verb is conjugated like protéger. It has both the spelling irregularities of other verbs in -ger (such as manger, where a silent ‘e’ is inserted before ‘a’ and ‘o’ endings (to indicate the /ʒ/ sound), and the spelling and pronunciation irregularities of other verbs in -é-er (such as céder), where the last stem vowel alternates between /e/ (written ‘é’) and /ɛ/ (written ‘è’).
