Verb[edit]

embrayer

  1. to engage (to mesh or interlock)
  2. to engage, set in motion

Conjugation[edit]

  • This is a regular -er verb as far as pronunciation is concerned, but as with other verbs in -ayer (such as payer and essayer), the <y> of its stem may optionally be written as <i> when it precedes a silent <e>. (Contrast verbs in -eyer, which never have this spelling change, and verbs in -oyer and -uyer, which always have it. Verbs in -ayer belong to both groups, according to the writer's preference.)
