From re- +‎ endormir.



  1. (takes a reflexive pronoun) to fall asleep again, to fall back to sleep, to go back to sleep


This is one of a fairly large group of irregular -ir verbs that are all conjugated the same way. Other members of this group include sortir and dormir. The most significant difference between these verbs' conjugation and that of the regular -ir verbs is that these verbs' conjugation does not use the infix -iss-. Further, this conjugation has the forms (je, tu) rendors and (il) rendort in the present indicative and imperative, whereas a regular -ir verb would have *rendormis and *rendormit (as in the past historic).
