How do you conjuate -ar -er and -ir verb?

asked by Amanda
  1. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help forum. Since you probably mean in the Present Indicative (verbs of Spanish I), the usual pattern verbs:

    -ar = hablar
    yo hablo
    tú hablas
    él/ella/usted habla
    nosotros/nosotras hablamos
    vosotros/vosotras hablais
    ellos/ellas/ustedes hablan

    -er = comer
    yo como
    tú comes
    él/ella/usted come
    nosotros/nosotras comemos
    vosotros/vosotras comeis
    ellos/ellas/ustedes comen

    -ir = vivir
    yo vivo
    tú vives
    él/ella/usted vive
    nosotros/nosotras vivimos
    vosotros/vosotras vivís
    ellos/ellas/ustedes viven

    The way to conjugate any regular verb then is to follow those patterns. Drop the infinitive ending -ar/-er/-ir and add the endings: -ar = o, as, a, amos, ais, an
    -er = o, es, e, emos, eis, en
    -ir = o, es, e, imos, ís, en

    Note that the -er and -ir verbs have the same endings except for first person plural (nosotros) and second person plural (vosotros.) This is to say the "nosotros" form is your friend, clearly identifying -ir, -er, or -ir verbs.

  3. Thank you for using the Jiskha Homework Help Forum. Actually, if you do "Post a New Question" we will not think it is part of the verb question!

    Direct Objects:
    English Spanish
    me me
    you (fam) te (familiar)
    him, it (masc)
    her, it (fem.)
    us nos
    you (pl, familiar)
    them los or las (depending upon the object being masculine plural or feminine plural)

    In your example: comiste unos tacos it would be "los comiste."
