    There are several sentences with examples in the post “The subjunctive I”, from last month. You can also find plenty of examples in the post “Grammar tip: la forma reduplicativa”. You can use the search bar from the top right hand corner (if you’re accessing the blog from its original website) to look for specific content in our blog archive.
    In the meantime, I will start by sending you an example in this comment. Other users are free to follow:
    No es necesario que traigas un regalo. —- You don’t need to bring a present.

    The conjugator Onoma might be useful for those studying Spanish as a foreign language. It has a database of 15000 verbs, and allows to conjugate even invented verbs.

    It provides not only the entire conjugation of any verb, but it also gives information about the types of irregularities.If given a conjugated form, it also gives the infinitive to which it may belong.

    A free copy of the book “El verbo en español” (containing an analysis of the Spanish conjugation) can be downloaded from the site. In this book you will find a system to know ifa verb is regular or not. This means that instead of having to memorize dozens of models of irregularities, it suffices to have the infinitive of the verb and go through seven steps to know if the verb is regular, and if not, which irregularities can we expect the verb to have.
