French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

From Latin fūstīgāre, from fūstis (club).

Verb[edit]

fustiger

  1. to fustigate, to publicly criticize

Conjugation[edit]

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