geler

  1. (transitive, intransitive) to freeze
  2. (impersonal, weather) to be very cold

Conjugation[edit]

This verb is conjugated mostly like the regular -er verbs (parler and chanter and so on), but the -e- /ə/ of the second-to-last syllable becomes -è- /ɛ/ when the next vowel is a silent or schwa -e-. For example, in the third-person singular present indicative, we have il gèle rather than *il gele. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
