I was thinking recently about French. I noticed how with a lot of verbs in English you can just add -er to the end to turn it into a noun like "someone who verbs" like how you can take run and turn it into runner, which is someone who runs. Is there a way to do this in French? If so, how?


Le suffixe « eur » permet souvent de convertir un verbe en nom. Quelques exemples:

  • courir -> coureur

  • marcher -> marcheur

  • programmer -> programmeur

  • vendre -> vendeur
