Etymology[edit]

Borrowed from Latin corrigēre, present active infinitive of corrigō.

Pronunciation[edit]

Verb[edit]

corriger

  1. to correct
    Quelqu'un doit corriger son erreur.
    Someone must correct her error.
  2. (school); to grade (US), to mark (UK)

Conjugation[edit]

This is a regular -er verb, but the stem is written corrige- before endings that begin with -a- or -o- (to indicate that the -g- is a “soft” /ʒ/ and not a “hard” /ɡ/). This spelling-change occurs in all verbs in -ger, such as neiger and manger.
