Has the conjugation of essayer in the present tense changed over the years? I learned "j'essaye" ( a long time ago ).
No, nothing has changed. French has always supported different spellings in the conjugated forms of essayer. In fact at school I was taught "j'essaie" and was confused when I first came across the alternative form. Payer is similar.
