Conjugating the French Verb  Bavarder Bavarder  is a  regular -ER verb  and it follows the standard verb conjugation patterns of similar words like  parler  (to talk)  and  dà ©clarer  (to declare). This means that once you memorize the endings for one verb, the rest will be just a little bit easier.
