Latin/Future Tense Lesson 3

From Wikiversity
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Salvēte omnēs! Welcome back to Latin for Wikiversity. Here you can peruse a new lesson in Latin, in a simple format. If you would like to catch up, you can find a directory of lessons, a classified vocabulary list, and Memrise courses at the links on the right.

This lesson we’ll continue with future tense, with some irregular verbs and deponent verbs. The basic paradigms

bō, bis, bit, bimus, bitis, bunt
am, ēs, et, ēmus, ētis, ent

that we’ve studied in the past two lessons take care of the vast majority of (active) future tense forms, but for deponent verbs (verbs with active meaning but passive in form) we will need to be familiar with those forms as well. Basically, we are learning the passive voice forms before studying the passive voice, but you can think of it as saving time later on. Here are some sample conjugations of deponent verbs in future tense:

1st conjugation cōnor
Latin English
cōnābor I will try
cōnāberis You will try
cōnābitur He / she / it will try
cōnābimur We will try
cōnābiminī You (pl) will try
cōnābuntur They will try
3rd conjugation loquor
Latin English
loquar I will speak
loquēris You will speak
loquētur He / she / it will speak
loquēmur We will speak
loquēminī You (pl) will speak
loquentur They will speak
