A boring but necessary review. Next time we’ll start to get into what you can actually do with your new “te” form verbs.
Remixing A Classic
Blue: The て form follows the same rules as the casual past tense, but with a て instead of a た.
Yellow: I obviously remember all of those rules.
Yellow: But maybe the… audience… needs a reminder.
Blue: If a verb ends in “iru” or “eru” you replacte the last る with て.
Blue: If the verb ends in a る that isn’t “iru” or “eru” or with a つ or う you replace the last syllable with って.
Blue: If the verb ends in く you change the く to いて.
Blue: If the verb ends in ぐ change the ぐ to いで.
Blue: If the verb ends in す change the す to して.
Blue: And finally if the verb ends in ぬ, む or ぶ change the last syllable to んで
