modeler

Definition from Dictionary, a free dictionary
What life means to us is determined, not so much by what life brings to us as by the attitude we bring to life; not so much by what happens to us as by our reaction to what happens.

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 modèle rather than *il modele. Other verbs conjugated this way include lever and mener. Related but distinct conjugations include those of appeler and préférer.
