To verb

Verb: "Conjugate"

Here are some examples with the verb "conjugate." If you doubt that "conjugate" is a verb (or need to look up what it means), definitions from dictionary.com and Merriam-Webster agree. Note that, as with many verbs, noun forms exist. Here we're using the verb form.

Singular Plural
PersonPronounVerb    PronounVerb
1stIconjugate     weconjugate
2ndyouconjugate     you [all]conjugate
3rdhe/she/itconjugates      theyconjugate

Conjgate is a regular verb, so the present tense is simple. Consider the past tense:

Singular Plural
PersonPronounVerb    PronounVerb
1stIconjugated     weconjugated
2ndyouconjugated     you [all]conjugated
3rdhe/she/itconjugated     theyconjugated
The past tense is easy to form with a weak verb like "conjugate." This is normal behavior for a verb. English has more complicated verbs, like irregular and strong verbs, but those are generally the oldest verbs in the language. New verbs are regular and weak.
