Verb conjugation is when a verb changes based on a different personm tense, number or mood.
In English, we have six different persons: first person singular (I), second person singular (you), third person singular (he/she/it/one), first person plural (we), second person plural (you), and third person plural (they).
|First Person Singular||I am|
|Second Person Singular||You are|
|Third Person Singular||He/she/it is|
|First Person Plural||We are|
|Second Person Plural||You are|
|Third Person Plural||They are|
Verb tense indicates when the action in a sentence is happening (e.g., in the present, future, or past).
Regular verbs follow a standard pattern when conjugated according to tense, while irregular verbs do not.
Note that continuous is also known as progressive when it comes to conjugation form.
|Simple Future||will live|
|Present Continuous||am living|
|Past Continuous||was living|
|Future Continuous||will be living|
|Present Perfect||have lived|
|Past Perfect||had lived|
|Future Perfect||will have lived|
|Present Perfect Continuous||have been living|
|Past Perfect Continuous||had been living|
|Future Perfect Continuous||will have been living|
