Old French[edit]


Inherited from Latin aestimāre, present active infinitive of aestimō, possibly with the prefix ad- (cf. Medieval Latin adaestimare). Eventually replaced with a borrowing in Middle and modern French (estimer), as this word came too close in pronunciation to aimer.



  1. to estimate; to work out through thought
  2. to like; to love; to respect


This verb conjugates as a first-group verb ending in -er. In the present tense an extra supporting e is needed in the first-person singular indicative and throughout the singular subjunctive, and the third-person singular subjunctive ending -t is lost. Old French conjugation varies significantly by date and by region. The following conjugation should be treated as a guide.




From Arabic أَسْمَر(ʾasmar).



  1. having a rich olive skin tone; tan, tanned, dark
  2. brunette (having brown or black hair)
