Romanian Verbs

Learning the Romanian Verbs displayed below is vital to the language. Romanian verbs are words that convey action (bring, read, walk, run), or a state of being (exist, stand). In most languages a verb may agree with the person, gender, and/or number of some of its arguments, such as its subject, or object.

Grammar Tips:

-       Present Tense

In Romanian, only one tense (Present) corresponds to four structures in English: Present Tense Simple, Present Tense Progressive, Present Perfect Simple and Present Perfect Progressive.

There are five main categories of verbs in terms of the verbs ending at the infinitive mood. Verb endings:  -a, -ea, -e, -i, -î. The stem endings at present simple are different for each verb category. For example:

-a: A aștepta (to wait)

Eu aștept, tu aștepți, el/ea așteaptă, noi așteptăm, voi așteptați, ei/ele așteaptă

-ea: A vedea (to see)

Eu văd, tu vezi, el/ea vede, noi vedem, voi vedeți, ei/ele văd

-e: A face (to wait)

Eu fac, tu faci, el/ea face, noi facem, voi faceți, ei/ele fac

-i: A gândi (to think)

Eu gândesc, tu gândești, el/ea gândește, noi gândim, voi gândiți, ei/ele gândesc

-î: A hotărî (to decide)

Eu hotărăsc, tu hotărăști, el/ea hotărăște, noi hotărâm, voi hotărâți, ei/ele hotărăsc

-       Past Tense

In Romanian as well as in English the simple past tense (imperfect) is used to describe past events. The structure contains an auxiliary corresponding to each person and the participle of the notional verb. The auxiliary forms are: eu am, tu ai, el/ea a, noi am, voi ați, ei/ele au. Example:

eu am plecat, tu ai plecat, el/ea a plecat, noi am plecat, voi ați plecat, ei/ele au plecat (I left, you left, etc.)

-       Future Tense

To form the future in Romanian it’s very easy. It is made up of an auxiliary corresponding to each person and the infinitive form of the notional verb: eu voi, tu vei, el/ea va, noi vom, voi veți, ei/ele vor. Example:

eu voi merge, tu vei merge, el/ea va merge, noi vom merge , voi veți merge, ei/ele vor merge
