When you're conjugating an -ere verb, such as docere, when do you put the macron on the past tense forms? I know in present tense, the macron is only used for you singular+plural and we. Are -ere verbs inconsistent like this, or is it consistent like the future tense? Thanks for your help.

  • Latin -

    If, by past tense, you mean the imperfect tense, active voice, here is how docçre is conjugated:

    docebam (macron over the e)
    docebas (macrons over the e and a)
    docebat (macron over the e)

    docebamus (macrons over the e and a)
    docebatis (macrons over the e and a)
    docebant (macron over the e)

    If you have another tense and voice in mind, please repost.

    That was it exactly. Thanks for answering my question.

  • Latin -

    You're very welcome.
