Usage notes[edit]

  • This verb uses the auxiliary verb avoir when used transitively (or with a transitive sense, even when the complement is omitted); otherwise (when it is intransitive), it uses être. Hence être is used to form the perfect tense when monter has the sense "go up, climb, ascend", while avoir is used when it has the senses "put on, stage", "ride", "bring up".
