Old French[edit]

Etymology 1[edit]

From Latin calceāre, present active infinitive of calceō.



  1. (transitive) to shoe (put footwear on someone/something)
  2. (reflexive, se chaucier) to put shoes on

This verb conjugates as a first-group verb ending in -ier, with a palatal stem. These verbs are conjugated mostly like verbs in -er, but there is an extra i before the e of some endings. The forms that would normally end in *-c, *-cs, *-ct are modified to z, z, zt. In addition, c becomes ç before an a, o or u to keep the /ts/ sound intact. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.
