First Conjugation Sentences Posted by on Mar 12, 2010 in Uncategorized

Let’s compare the two sentences:

(1) Portō sum

(2) Portō

Both sentences mean “I am carrying” or “I carry” or “I do carry”. “Sum” is unnecessary because “portō” by itself means “I carry”.

Now take a look at (1) – (6). Note that amāre = to love.

(1) Amō = I love

(2) Amās = You love

(3) Amat = He/She/It loves

(4) Amāmus = We love

(5) Amātis = You all love

(6) Amant = They love

Now can you figure out the meanings of (1) – (6) based on the conjugations above?

(1) cōgitās (cōgitāre = to think)

(2) dubitō (dubitāre = to doubt)

(3) labōrāmus (labōrāre = to labor/work)

(4) necātis (necāre = to kill)

(5) pugnat (pugnāre = to fight)

(6) spectant (spectāre = to watch)

The answers will be posted in the next post.
