French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin convenire, present active infinitive of conveniō. Spelt covenir in Old French, etymologically reconstructed in Middle French to closer match the original Latin spelling.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

convenir

  1. (followed by de) to admit; to agree (to, upon)
  2. (followed by à) to suit; to be convenient (for).
    On se voit mardi, si cela convient aux autres.
    We’ll meet up on Tuesday, if this suits the others.

Usage notes[edit]

When conjugating convenir, compound verbs cannot be formed using être as the auxiliary verb in the sense of to suit. It must take avoir. This is even though it derives from venir, which takes être.
