not in dictionary

convirtir is not in the dictionary. I have seen it used a lot in the sports section, especially with the mundial. e.g. Italia se convirtio en la gran estrella indiscutible...

Re: not in dictionary

Hola Haloe Boy!
The verb is "convertir", later the declination makes it "convirtió"
Yo me convertí en elefante I convert/shaped? myself in an elephant
Tu te convertiste en elefante
El se convirtió
Nosotros nos convertimos
Vosostros os convertisteis
Ellos se convirtieron.

Saludos

Re: not in dictionary

no, that is a different verb. convirtir means to pull off or convert.

From http://www.wordreference.com/
convertir verbo transitivo
1 to turn, change
2 Rel to convert

- Diccionario Espasa Concise: Español-Inglés English-Spanish

I only know this. I don't know "convirtir". Sorry

Re: not in dictionary

I agree with sosia on this. It's convertir and the e changes to i in some conjugations as already mentioned.
