Leonese/Verbs

Like other Romance languages, Leonese verbs have an intricate conjugation. Those are inflected for tenses (present, preterite imperfect, indefinite, future, conditional, pluperfect), moods (indicative, subjunctive, imperative), persons (first, second, third), numbers (singular, plural), and non-finite forms (infinitive, past participle, gerund). However, some of the endings give an impression similar to Italian, as the infinitive endings -are, -ere, and -ire as opposed to Spanish -ar, -er, and -ir.
