Tip: Verb Conjugation for Types I & II

Did you know that the Type I and Type II verbs in Irish are conjugated in special ways?

In the Verb Conjugation section of the app, the verb selector lets you pick just a handful of verbs. Some people wonder why that is.

Type I verbs are conjugated similarly based on the category of verb. You’ll see this listed under the verb in green text: “Broad”, “Slender”, and “Long -igh sound”.

This means that most broad verbs are conjugated in a similar way, most slender verbs are conjugated in a similar way, etc.

So you don’t have to have every Irish verb in the app. Learn the patterns based on the verb category, and you should be able to conjugate most Irish verbs!
