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...
are all verbs differently conjugated in italian? theres not like one basic rule to the verbs?
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).
isnt there a basic rule to these verbs/ understanding italian verbs? he/she/it? they? you? I?
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.
just saw your other note, so helpful. just answered my question i JUST asked before reading your response
-are: o, i, a, iamo, ate, ano i= o you= i he she= a us= iamo voi(I) = ate loro= ano
-ere: i= o, you= i, he/she/it= e, us= iamo voi= ete, loro(they)= ono
-ire: i= o, you= i, he/she/it= e, us= iamo, voi= ite, they= ono
