Pronunciation

Verb

amener

  1. To bring (a person)
    Je peux t'amener chez toi?
    Can I give you a lift home?
    Elle m'a amené en voiture à la gare.
    She gave me a lift to the station.
  2. To reel in (a fish)

Conjugation

  • This verb is conjugated mostly like the regular -er verbs (parler and chanter and so on), but the -e- /ə/ of the second-to-last syllable becomes -è- /ɛ/ before a silent or schwa -e-. For example, in the third-person singular present indicative, we have il amène rather than *il amene. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
