I have a thirty-year-old list of thousands of French verbs, with translations. Is anyone aware of a list of French verbs that have entered the language more recently? I would like to ensure that the list of verbs is current.

New verbs are almost all regular and belong to the first group (e.g.: kiffer, liker, plussoyer) so are simple to conjugate.

A weird exception is the verlan verb pécho which has only this form regardless of the tense / mode.

  • J'aurais pensé aussi aux nombreux verbes en -ave (ex: tchourave) qui restent également invariables.

  • @XouDo Chouraver est beaucoup plus ancien (attesté depuis plus de 60 ans - Frédéric Dard) et peut s'accorder (il a chouravé, vous chouravez, J’te chourav’rai ton blouson - Renaud).

  • Ouais, 1931 du romani tchorav « voler » (DHLF/Rey). À part les trucs technologiques, je sais pas si on a tant de nouveaux verbes que ça dans le dernier quart de siècle au Québec... Apr 8 at 18:50
