SPOSARE – verbs #1
Posted On June 1, 2018
One area where I always feel I am lacking in knowledge is verbs. Not the conjugation per se, more just not knowing enough of them to make myself understood.
To start with, I will be selecting (at random) a verb from the book 501 Italian Verbs and making notes on certain aspects including: meaning, gerund form, past participle, and whether it takes avere or essere (I’ll cover compound tenses in a future post). Let’s begin.
SPOSARE: to marry
Past Participle: sposato
Conjugates with avere
Reflexive: sposarsi “to get married”
Le ha chiesto di sposarlo He asked her to marry him
Ci sposò il sindaco The mayor married us
Io penso che sarebbe bellissimo sposarsi. I think it would be great to get married
il matrimonio matrimony, wedding
lo sposalizio wedding ceremony
le nozze wedding
in luna di miele on honeymoon
