Alternative forms[edit]


From a variant form of the attested Old Occitan cazer (in which the stress was instead on the final syllable), from Latin cadere, present active infinitive of cadō. The modern Catalan and Occitan words may have underwent a conjugation shift in which the stress moved to the first syllable or perhaps derived from unattested variant forms in their ancestral languages, corresponding to the original Latin third conjugation type (the attested Old Catalan and Old Provençal forms instead correspond to the Latin second conjugation, in this case the Vulgar Latin form *cadēre, which was the source of almost all other Romance cognates). Catalan and Occitan typically merged many second conjugation type Latin verbs (stressed -ēre) into the third conjugation type (unstressed -ere), so it is not unusual.
