Same stem verbs

hello

do you know verbs of the same stem that end in -ar -er -ir?

for example verbs like comar, comer, comir? are there verbs like this?

I will use them to memorize conjuction, it may be more easy that memorizing hablar, comer, vivir

thanks

I don't think this will be possible. Even if you did find three verbs like this, they probably wouldn't all be regular verbs and thus wouldn't be useful for learning the three -ar, -er, and -ir verb conjugations. That said, these are all the pairs I can think of:

morar - to dwell
morir - to die

podar - to prune
poder - to be able to

sumir - to sink
sumar - to add

sentar - to sit
sentir - to feel

parir - to give birth
parar - to stop

asir - to seize
asar - to grill
(hacer sounds the same, but is spelled differently )

verter - to pour
vertir - to pour

salar - to season/salt
salir - to go out

vender - to sell
vendar - to bandage

This is an interesting idea, but I'd just recommend you bite the bullet and start learning them even if it's not easy. Your ultimate goal should be to learn all Spanish verbs anyway, right?

One cannot learn conjugation verb by verb... that's what manuals are for: they make groups of the same kind and show an example... one learns by conjugating the rest of the group like the sample.

Por favor trata de recordar los finales de verbos, ellos se
hacen naturales
-ar en el presente
yo camino
tú caminas
ella camina
vosotros camináis
ellos caminan

-er/-ir
yo como
tú comes
ella come
vosotros coméis
ellos comen

Entonces recuerda el pretérito, entonces el futuro, entonces subjuntivo, después de que eso estoy seguro de que saberás mucho del español

estudia cada verbo tiempo por una semana

Firstly they're not like between them.

Comar and comir doesn't make sense in English, later you can use them of the following way.

Comer ONLY.

Poder Yes

Podir Not

Podar Yes.


Then you need to be clearer in the word that you normally use or want to use during a conjugation of a verb.
