For the verb componer in the present tu form is Compone. But in the preterito it's compuso.

Is the ending -puso because the verb as poner in it which is irregular?

Also, would this be the case for all verbs that have endings that are irregular?

  • Spanish -

    Yes for verbs ending with poner, but compone/compuso is not the tu' form of the verb. It goes with Ud./el/ella.

    I can't say for certain if the same rule applied to all irregular verbs with identical endings.

    SraJMcGin may post an answer to that later.

  • Spanish -

    Yes, the verb componer follows the pattern for poner, exactly, just with the prefix "com" there.

    Present tense:
    poner = pongo, pones, pone, ponemos, ponéis, ponen

    compouer = compongo, compones, compone, componemos, componéis, componen

    Preterit tense:
    poner = puse, pusiste, puso, pusimos, pusisteis, pusieron

    componer = compuse, compusiste, compuso, compusimos, compusisteis, compusieron
