See or see: verb conjugations.
Conjugation is one of the most difficult topics of the Russian language. Usually it is with her difficulties. Russian language is characterized by the fact that many rules have exceptions. The topic "conjugation of verbs" is no different. It contains many exceptions to the rules.
What is conjugation?
In fact, this topic is quite simple. It is necessary once to make an effort, and you will understand it forever. To begin with, we denote the general rules. So, the first thing to know is the concept. Verb conjugation is their inclination to faces and numbers. A change in persons means the assignment of a verb to a participant in speech. For example: "I write, he writes, you write." We understand what a certain person is writing. Declination in numbers means changing the verb from the singular to the plural, and vice versa. For example: "I draw - we draw, you draw, you draw" and so on. With this sorted out. We proceed to a further explanation.
Verbs of the first and second conjugation
In Russian there are two types of conjugation: the first and second.The most important difference between them is different endings.
- The ending -y (-y), -out (-yut), -you (-y), -y (-y), -et (-et), -e (-e) refer to the verbs of the first conjugation.
- The ending -at (-yat), -it, -ite, -yo belong to the verbs of the second conjugation.
How to determine which of the conjugations include one or another verb? There are two ways. To apply the first, you need to ask questions to the existing verb: what are you doing? what is he doing? what are they doing? For example, take the verb "give." Asking questions. It turns out "give, give, give." We distinguish the endings: -y, -y, -yu. It is easy to guess that this is the verb of the first conjugation. However, to apply this rule, it is necessary that the stress in the modified verb end off. Then you can't go wrong. Now take another verb. For example, "be silent." Similarly, we ask questions. We get: "silent, silent, silent." The following endings turned out: - you, - it, - at. This verb belongs to the second conjugation. If the personal ending of the verb is unstressed, then apply rule two. It consists in putting the verb in an indefinite form, i.e. the infinitive. For this to the verb you need to ask the question "what to do?". For example, we are given the verb "paint".Ask a question, we get the answer: "paint." Select the ending -ite. So the verb belongs to the second conjugation. By applying these rules, you can never go wrong. It's simple!
See or see?
Do not forget that conjugation of verbs is just just at first glance. There are still some tricks. See or see? Does the rule somehow explain this point? In fact, there is no rule. There are exceptions to remember. We found out that the endings -at and -et belong to the first conjugation, but seven words per -e and four na -at appropriated the second. These words include:
- -at: hear, breathe, drive, hold.
- -not: look, see, endure, depend, hate, twirl.
There are exceptions in the first conjugation. Two verbs on -bit: shave, lay. All other verbs are distributed according to the general rule. See or see? Ask the question "what to do?". The answer is to see. And here we remember those exceptions. The verb "to see", despite the ending -e, belongs to the second conjugation. And at the second conjugation the ending is terrible. It means that you will write correctly "you see."
