Pronunciation[edit]

  • IPA(key): /ɑ̃.tʁə.mɑ̃.ʒe/

Verb[edit]

entre-manger

  1. (reflexive) to eat one another

Conjugation[edit]

This is a regular -er verb, but the stem is written entre-mange- 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.
