-CER - French Spelling Change Verbs Examples

s Verbs that end in -cer, like lancer, have a spelling change before endings that begin with the hard vowels a or o. Because c followed by a or o would make a hard c sound (like in cold), the c has to change to à § (c with a cedilla) to keep the c soft (as in cell).In the present tense and the imperative, this c à § spelling change is found only in the nous conjugation: lanà §ons. It is needed in the present participle, lanà §ant, but not the past participle, lancà ©. And it occurs in the following tenses/moods: Imperfect - singular conjugations plus the third person pluralPassà © simple - all conjugations except the third person pluralImperfect subjunctive - all conjugations There is no spelling change in the conditional, future, or subjunctive.The table below summarizes just the spelling change conjugations, or you can see lancer conjugated in all tenses.All verbs that end in -cer undergo this spelling change, including  Ã‚  Ã‚  annoncer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to announce  Ã‚  Ã‚  avancer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to advance  Ã‚  Ã‚  commencer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to begin  Ã‚  Ã‚  dà ©noncer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to denounce  Ã‚  Ã‚  divorcer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to divorce  Ã‚  Ã‚  effacer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to erase  Ã‚  Ã‚  lancer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to throw  Ã‚  Ã‚  menacer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to threaten  Ã‚  Ã‚  placer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to put  Ã‚  Ã‚  prononcer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to pronounce  Ã‚  Ã‚  remplacer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to replace  Ã‚  Ã‚  renoncer  Ã‚  Ã‚  to renounce Present Imperfect Pass simple Imperfect subjunctive Participles je lance lanais lanai lanasse tu lances lanais lanas lanasses Present il lance lanait lana lant lanant nous lanons lancions lanmes lanassions vous lancez lanciez lantes lanassiez Past ils lancent lanaient lancrent lanassent lanc
