Conjugation[edit]

This verb traditionally has no past historic or imperfect subjunctive. They would be formed on a -retray- root: *je retrayis, *que nous retrayissions etc. Forms using the ‘a’ endings of verbs in -er are now used when there is an unavoidable need to use these forms. The root -retrais- was used instead of -retray- in the 18th century, and remains in Swiss and Savoy dialects.
