Portuguese/Contents/Present tense regular verbs

<< Portuguese:Regular verbs

Regular verbs have a invariable radical (falar - to speak) and are easy to memorize. Each conjugation follows a different, but regular pattern.

-ar present tense regular verbsEdit

All regular verbs ending in -ar are conjugated the same way. The conjugation is dependent on the subject that the verb is in reference to. Here is an example conjugation for the verb falar:

I speak Eu fal o
You (s,inf) speak Tu fal as
He speaks

(also ela, você)

Ele fal a
We speak Nós fal
amos
You (p) speak Vós fal
ais
They speak

(also elas, vocês)

Eles fal am

-er present tense regular verbsEdit

I eat Eu com o
You (s,inf) eat Tu com es
He eats

(also ela, você)

Ele com e
We eat Nós com
emos
You (p) eat Vós com
eis
They eat

(also elas, vocês)

Eles com em


-ir present tense regular verbsEdit

Regular tense verbs ending in -ir are handled very similarly to -er verbs. The only difference is the conjugation for nós and vós. Here is an example conjugation for the verb partir (to leave):

You (s,inf) leave Tu part es
He leave

(also ela, você)

Ele part e
We leave Nós part

You (p) leave Vós part is
