Activating the function: menu "Modules", "Conjugation tables", "Italian"
Also see: Italian conjugation rules
With help of this function you can let Coniuno display the conjugations of arbitrary Italian verbs. The indication of the wanted verb is done in the lower right corner in the edit-field "Enter verb". Coniuno will conjugate the verb after pressing the enter-key and display the conjugated forms in the list-boxes "Indicativo", "Condizionale" etc.
Beside the edit-field are located two further text fields that inform whether the verb is conjugated using auxiliary verb essere-, avere- or essere/avere and which conjugation scheme the verb is following. The verb "andare" for instance is conjugated with "essere" and is directly irregular (conjugation = andare). All irregular conjugation forms as well as an "essere"-conjugation are displayed on blue ground (marked). Regular conjugations instead are shown on white ground (not marked).
Accordingly the conjugations within one tense are shown marked/not marked. In case of the verb "andare" this would be beside others the Indicativo, presente-forms singular 1,2 and 3 as well as plural 3 of the verb.
Located in the lower area of the screen are the options "build passive forms" and "male forms".
With help of the option "build passive form" you can tell Coniuno to build the current verb with its active, respectively passive conjugation forms. Coniuno however does not check if the particular verb is used at all in passive form in Italian. When calling the conjugation table for the first time, Coniuno recognises automatically, whether the training mode for active or passive verbs is activated (also see Options, passive) and displays the current verb accordingly. Please note that a change of the active/passive setting here only has effect on the verb in the conjugation table. If you want to change the general active/passive setting for the verb training, please check the settings in Menu "Extras", "Options", "Passive".
The option "male forms" can be used to let Coniuno build the composed tenses as male forms or female forms.
By pressing the F4 key the Italian verb table is opened for the conjugated verb. This can either be a regular or an irregular verb.
In the conjugation table always the male forms of a verb are shown.
Certain verbs have more than one valid conjugation (e.g. the Indicativo, Presente of "sedere"). Coniuno shows the possible conjugations separated by a slash ("/"), e.g. "siedo / seggo". When training such verbs, both verb-forms can be used.
The following verb-schemes are supported:
1. Verb = andare 2. Verb + Text = andare a casa mia 3. Verb + Reflexive + Text = risolversi a fare qc
It is not necessary that verbs are stored in the training-verbsets ("verbset 1,2,3,4,5" or "example verbs"), to be conjugated here. Coniuno conjugates verbs independent from the verbsets (also see conjugation rules). If a verb cannot be conjugated, as it does not follow any of the Italian verb-schemes, then an according error message is shown (e.g. when entering "andrea" instead of "andare").
It can however be necessary to provide certain indications for verbs that are not recognised automatically by Coniuno. This is for example the question if a verb is conjugated using "essere" or "avere" or the list of verbs that are conjugated like "finire" (isc). If these indications are missing, then Coniuno works with default settings. For further information regarding this topic, see administer irregular verb-infos.
