French[edit]

Etymology[edit]

présage +‎ -er

Verb[edit]

présager

  1. to predict, to foresee, foretell
  2. to forewarn
  3. to portend, be an omen of
  4. to bode

Conjugation[edit]

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