Examples of Second Conjugation Verbs

The second conjugation has some irregularities not found in the first conjugation. In particular, the four principal parts do not follow in a single standard way from the first person present indicative form. However, some regular patterns occur. I have grouped this list according to the third principal part or first person perfect indicative form.

Second conjugation -evi verbs

The endings of the principal parts are -eo, -ere, -evi, and -etus. Verbs that follow this pattern are marked (2evi) for short.

Second conjugation -ui verbs

The endings of the principal parts are -eo, -ere, -ui, and -itus. I mark these verbs as (2ui) for short.

Second conjugation -i verbs
