Some examples of verbs ending in -ir:
In the present tense, we replace the ending -ir by a different ending, depending on the person who is performing the action. Note that these endings are exactly the same as for verbs ending in -er.
|Replace -ir with||Ending||Example|
|First person (I)||-o||(yo) vivo|
|Second person (you)||-es||(tú) vives, (usted) vive|
|Third person (he, she)||-e||(él) vive, (ella) vive|
he lives, she lives
Note that the polite form usted uses the third instead of the second person conjugation.
