Latin Present Subjunctive : ARE VERBS
Learning how to form the Latin Subjunctive tenses is actually very easy. However, learning when to use the Latin Subjunctive can be very tricky. Going step by step and using the same colors used for (ARE-long ERE , ERE and IRE) you will see that by just shuffling a few letters around the formation of the Subjunctive tenses is simple. The colors will remain the same as they were when the verbs were in the Indicative mood.
Review the steps for the Indicative Mood of an ARE verb (portare)
|Step 1- Look at the 4 principal parts.
|Step 2- Identify the 2nd principal part (infinitive).
|Step 3- Drop the (RE) and you have the stem.
|Step 4- Add your personal endings.
|o-s-t-mus-tis-nt = I-you-he-we-you -they
Change the Indicative Mood to the Subjunctive Mood for ARE verbs:
Change the (a) of the indicative stem to an (e) and add the regular personal endings.
It is actually that simple. To make it Passive just change to Passive personal endings.
