Conjugations

David,

Please have a look at tocar. It isn't supposed to be a stem changing verb. There are others that conjugate like tocar with the same problem; e.g., abocar, achocar, chocar, etc.

You understandably have a long dash, indicating a non-existent conjugation, in the first-person imperative slot. Is there a way you could do something similar for non-existent conjugations in verbs like llover, gustar, etc.?

Thanks for all your hard work!

Rusty

Thanks Rusty.

I've fixed tocar and the other similar verbs.

I also changed the program so it only conjugates the following verbs in the 3rd person singular:

llover, anochecer, amanecer, granizar, relampaguear, helar, nevar

I left out tronar, since besides meaning to thunder (where it would only be used in the 3rd person sing.), it also mean to snap (your fingers) and it fully conguated.

I also didn't change gustar. While it is most often used in the 3rd pers. singular and plural, it can also be used in all conjugations:

te gusto? = do you like me?
je je, le gustas! = ha ha he likes you.

etc.

What do you think of that decision?

Other verbs like gustar would also be encantar, importar, & parecer.

Thank you very much! Great job!

Your decision on gustar and similar verbs seems reasonable, but it might be a good idea to create a post to explain them in more detail.

That is a good idea.

Thanks for pointing out the problem to me. If you happen to see any other verbs that aren't conjugated right, I'd be grateful if you let me know.
