how do i read the italian tenses like im learning italian now... but where can i find something that will tell me the MAIN VERBS in italian,,,
like he she it is "ono"
or you are "iamo"
I'm sorry, but I don't think I understood what you're talking about... especially those "ono" and "iamo" there don't make any sense to me.
Perhaps a conjugation table could help you: go to http://www.italian-verbs.com/italian-verbs.htm and insert an Italian verb in the infinitive, e.g. essere, avere, potere, parlare, temere, dormire...
Not one basic rule, but there is a rather large group of verbs that has been divided in three main classes by grammarians: the distinction is inherited from Latin grammar and is based on the infinitive termination, -are, -ere or -ire. A table for them is at http://italian.about.com/library/fare/blverbs01.htm Unfortunately the most common verbs are irregular (like in any language, really).
Yeah, but it changes for each tense and for verbs ending in -are, -ire, -ere. The present tense for regular verbs are as follows [I, you, he/she/it, we, you all, they]
-are: o, i, a, iamo, ate, ano
-ere: o, i, e, iamo, ete, ono
-ire: o, i, e, iamo, ite, ono
But there are SO many tenses and irregulars you'll just have to learn them slowly.
