Old French[edit]


From Vulgar Latin *piscāre, from Latin piscārī, present active infinitive of piscor, from piscis (a fish).



  1. to fish (catch fish or other marine life)


This verb conjugates as a first-group verb ending in -ier, with a palatal stem. These verbs are conjugated mostly like verbs in -er, but there is an extra i before the e of some endings. 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.
