SUBJUNCTIVE MODE OF THE PRESENT

BETA ACTIVITIES

As all regular verbs are formed, the regular forms of the subjunctive mode of the present are formed by taking the regular root and adding the regular ending.

The regular subjunctive forms of the present tense are often described as using the 'opposite' endings.

Keep in mind that, in Spanish, usually the form to talk about myself is the same as the form to talk about someone else (he or she), and this is true for all the subjunctive forms.

Note that the subjunctive form of "da" and "doy" is "dé", with a written accent to distinguish it visually from the preposition "de". The other subjunctive forms don't have written accents: "den", "des", and "demos".

The indicative form of the verb often is found in the subordinate clause, but the opposite isn't true: the subjunctive form of the verb is rarely found in the main clause.

REGULAR FORMS - ROOT FIXES

(I.E., ORTHOGRAPHIC CHANGES)


Verb roots ending in C, G, and Z at times require spelling changes (orthographic changes) to maintain the same sound in all the forms.

REGULAR FORMS - ROOT VARIATIONS

(I.E., STEM CHANGES)


For the most part, verbs with root variations (a stressed variation of the root and an unstressed variation) do exactly what you expect.

But if the indicative form "we do" ends with "-imos", there is an extra unstressed root variation that shows up in the subjunctive form that ends with "-amos": dormimos → durmamos.

These are always verbs whose infinitive ends with "-ir".

verbs like gustar | indirect objects | other uses | facilexico vocabulary


Verbs like "gusta" - With Indirect Objects

pleases, interests, enchants, fascinates, satisfies, displeases, bothers/annoys, confuses, bores, aches/hurts


MINI-LESSON

Reflexive & Non-reflexive Indirect-Object Pronouns

This vocabulary includes verbs like "gusta" ("pleases").

These are verbs that always use a direct object in English ("Something pleases him") but usually use an indirect object in Spanish ("Algo le gusta").

With these verbs in Spanish, the indirect object is the first and only object of the verb, something that never happens in English. In Spanish, note that most of these verbs can also be used with direct objects for a slight difference in meaning, a nuance that is hard to explain.

Another verb that follows this pattern in Spanish is "importa", which in English is expressed with an object of a preposition: "eso me importa" expresses "that matters to me.

There are many other verbs in Spanish that follow this indirect-object pattern that require very different wording/structures in English: "queda", "sobra", "falta", etc.

Also remember that the Spanish objects "me/te/nos/se" can be either direct or indirect. In other words, in these four cases, the direct-object pronouns and the indirect-object pronouns are spelled exactly the same.
