Latin Present Subjunctive: 3 (IO) stem ERE verbs

Review the steps for the Indicative Mood of the ERE I Stem verb (capio)

Step_1_Look_at_the_4_Principal_Parts capio-capere-cepi-captum
Step_2_Identify_the_2nd_principal_part_(infinitive) capere
Step_3_Drop_the_(ERE)_and_add_an_(i) cap(i)
Step_4_Add_your_personal_endings o-s-t-mus-tis-nt

Change the Indicative Mood (ERE - I Stem) to the Subjunctive Mood (ERE - I Stem) by adding an (a) after the Indicative present stem. CAPIT to CAPIAT.

To make it Passive just substitute Active personal endings for Passive personal endings.
