As we learned in § 126, the present stem of the third con- jugation ends in -€, and of the fourth in -i. The inflection of the Present Indicative is as follows : Conjugation III Conjugation IV re'gS, re'gere (ru/g) PRES.STEM regfc- au'diS, audi're {hear) Pres.

. The personal endings are the same as before. 

. The final short -e- of the stem reg*- combines with the -6 in the first person, becomes -u- in the third person plural, and becomes -I- elsewhere. The inflection is like that of erO, the future of sum.

  • Observe that all the imperfects denote continued or progressive action,

or describe a state of affairs. (Cf. § 134.)
