4th Conjugation Verbs are nearly identical to 3rd ERE I stems. (No eris)*

Review the steps for the Indicative Mood of the IRE verb (Dormio).

Step 1Look at the four Principal Partsdormio - dormire - dormivi - dormitus (a-um)
Step 2Identify the 2nd Principal Part (infinitive)dormire
Step 3Drop the REdormi
Step 4Add the personal endingso-s-t-mus-tis-nt

Change the Indicative Mood (IRE) to the Subjunctive Mood (IRE) by adding an (a) after the Indicative present stem. (Dormio to Dormiam)

Indicative Present IRESubjunctive Present IRE

Just add Passive endings to form both the Present Indicative Passive and the Present Subjunctive Passive.
See the samples on the next page.

To make the verb Passive just substitute Passive personal endings.

Indicative Subjunctive
io ior iam iar
is iris* ias iaris
it itur iat iatur
imus imur iamus iamur
itis imini iatis iamini
iunt* iuntur iant iantur
