Irregular Verbs Review

  • Fero, ferre, tuli, latus means to bring, to bear, and is considered irregular due to its stem and ending irregularities in the present system, and a completely different root in the perfect system (tuli, tulisti, tulit).
  • The supine (latus) also differs from the present and perfect stems.

Volo, Velle, Volui

  • Volo means to want, and is considered irregular due to its present tense forms (volo, vis, vult) not following regular conjugation patterns.
  • The imperfect (volebam, volebas) and future (valam, voles) forms also diverge from typical verb patterns.

Malo, Malle, Malui

  • Malo means to prefer, and is considered irregular due to its present tense forms (malo, mavis, mavult) being irregular.
  • The stem changes significantly in different tenses.

Nolo, Nolle, Nolui

  • Nolo means to not want, and is considered irregular due to being derived from “non” + “volo”.
  • The present tense forms (nolo, non vis, non vult) and the perfect (nolui, noluisti) show significant irregularity.

Fio, Fieri, Factus sum

  • Fio means to become, to happen, and is considered irregular due to serving as the passive form of “facio” and having unique present tense forms (fio, fis, fit).
  • It uses the perfect passive participle of “facio” (factus).

Eo, Ire, Ivi/Ii, Itus

  • Eo means to go, and is considered irregular due to its present tense forms (eo, is, it) and compounds being irregular.
  • The perfect tense (ivi/ii, ivisti/iisti) shows significant variation.
