Etymology[edit]

From Middle French combatre, from Old French combatre, from Vulgar Latin *combattere, present active infinitive of *combattō, from Latin cum + battuō, from Gaulish.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

combattre

  1. to fight, to combat (against).
  2. to oppose, to struggle.

Conjugation[edit]

This verb is conjugated like battre. That means it is conjugated like vendre, perdre, etc. (sometimes called the regular -re verbs), except that instead of *combatt and *combatts, it has the forms combat and combats. This is strictly a spelling change; pronunciation-wise, the verb is conjugated exactly like vendre.
