French Regular -IR Verbs
There are 5 main kinds of French verbs:
-er
,
-ir
,
-re
,
stem-changing
, and
irregular
. Onceyou've learned the rules of conjugation for each of the first three kinds of verbs, you should haveno problem conjugating regular verbs in each of those categories. This lesson is on
-ir verbs
,which are the second most common category.Here are some of the
many -ir verbs
that you will soon be able to conjugate:
abolir
to abolish
 
agir
to act
avertir
to warn
bâtir
to build
bénir
to bless
choisir
to choose
établir
to establish
étourdir
to stun, deafen, make dizzy
finir

maigrir

obéir
to obey
punir
to punish
réfléchir
to reflect, think 
remplir
to fill
réussir
to succeed
rougir
to blush, turn red
vieillir
to grow oldThe verb form that
ends in -ir
 is called the
infinitive
(in English, the infinitive is the verb preceded by the word "to").
-ir
is the
infinitive ending
. The verb
without the -ir
is called the
stem
or 
radical
.To conjugate an -ir verb, remove the infinitive ending and then add the appropriate endings, asfollows:
 Singular Plural1st person
 je
-is
nous
-issons2nd person
tu
-is
vous
-issez3rd person
il
-it
ils
-issent
Thus to conjugate
choisir
, you would remove the infinitive ending to find the radical
chois-
andthen add the appropriate endings:
CHOISIR  Singular Plural
