Los Verbos Regulares/Regular Spanish Verbs In Spanish, there are three categories of verbs. The category is determined by the last two letters of the infinitive: Present tense conjugations of regular AR, -ER, - IR verbs -AR Verbs In Spanish, there are three classes verb families (or conjugations) of verbs: those that end in AR, those that end in ER, and those that end in IR. This is important
because the conjugation determines the endings you put on the verbs. Los Verbos: Verbs are action words = to do something These 3 verb families in Spanish: -AR, ER, -IR (are based on the endings of the infinitives of the verbs) The following are example verb infinitives: verb form that is found in the dictionary Ex: -AR = Hablar = to dance Ex: -ER = Comer = to eat EX: -IR = Escribir = to write Every verb has 2 parts The stem + ending
The stem of a verb is the part of the verb you get when you take the ar, -er or ir off of the infinitive Ex: Infinitive: Hablar Comer Escribir Stem: Habl Com Escrib Conjugation of verbs: Il Tiempo presente: Conjugation = changing the endings of the verb so that the verb agrees with the subject of the sentence (person doing the action of the verb)
In English: We conjugate in 2 forms and use pronouns. We say I speak, he speaks, we speak. We dont realize we are changing our endings. In Spanish: the endings are more exact there are 5 different endings on the stem of the verb so we know who is doing the action by the endings of the verb. pronouns are therefore not necessary. Los Pronombres PersonalesMany Spanish verbs are completely regular, meaning that they follow a specific pattern of conjugation. In this lesson you will learn to conjugate regular -ar, er, and -ir verbs (in the present tense). Before you can do that, you must memorize the following subject pronouns. Singular yo
Plural nosotros t Vosotros Vosotras l / ella / Ud. ellos / ellas / Uds. Present-tense verbs in Spanish can have several English equivalents. Each simple expression in Spanish may convey three different ideas in English:
(yo) (Yo) estudio espanol: I study simple Spanish. statement emphasis I do study Spanish. action in progress I am studying Spanish. Conjugation of verbs contd: There are endings of the verb for each subject pronoun in Spanish. Therefore, each ending is different for the subject of the sentence.
To conjugate a verb there are 2 parts: drop the infinitive and add the ending for each pronoun to the stem: ex: Hablar = to speak stem = Habl Yo hablo nosotros hablamos Tu hablas el/ella habla ellos/ellas hablan Ud. habla Uds. hablan To form the present tense (AR):
STEM -o + Verb ending -amos -as -a -an -ER endings present tense conjugation The endings for regular -ER verbs are the same as for
AR verbs, except that the vowel is E- instead of A-! yo -o t -es l, ella, Ud. -e nosotros -emos ellos -en ustedes en What about the IR Verbs? Well, take a look for yourself. Can you find the one difference? beber vivir bebo vivo bebes vives bebe vive bebemos vivimos
beben viven Regular Verbs As you can see, to conjugate regular ar or -er or -ir verbs, simply drop the ending (ar or er or -ir of the infinitive verb) and add one of the following : To summarize, here are the endings for the three verb conjugations: -AR -ER -IR -o -o -o -as -es -es -a -e
