Today we took notes on STEM CHANGING VERBS, which can be found below.
HW: Page 112 Act 29 (fill in the blanks and answer the math question at the end of the exercise)
Stem changing verbs change when they are conjugated.
The stem of the verb is the part that comes before the -ar, -er, or -ir ending. For example, the stem of the verb "hablar" is habl.
Most stem changing verbs do not change in the "nosotros" or "vosotros" forms.
Some stem changing verbs we have already seen this year are:
Preferir (e-->ie) *second e
The two new stem changing verbs introduced in this chapter are:
1) Dormir--to sleep
2)Poder--to be able to
Lastly, many stem changing verbs are also known as Boot Verbs, because you can draw a boot around the forms in which a change occurs.
