  • I've decided since everyone understood this to be a continuous game, to just let it run as is since it works better than what I had in mind. The verb link I just added is a good one to add to Ready's. - katydew Apr 26, 2013
  • Thanks for adding your flashcards. It always helps me. - katydew Apr 26, 2013

Abrasar - to burn (1.2)

Nosotros abrasamos

Nosotros abrasamos

Nosotros abrasábamos

Nosotros abrasaremos

Abrasan, Abrasaban, Abrasaron, Abrasarán

enter image description here

  • Abrasar is not a verb whose action a person can take on. You can say las llamas abrasaban al bosque... El sol me abrasaba... - francobollo Apr 27, 2013
  • Thanks Franco. That is a helpful bit of information. - katydew Apr 27, 2013
  • what does he mean by that - jessicamccal Apr 30, 2013
  • Jessica, he means that a person cannot "abrasar". Things like flames (las llamas) and sun (sol) can abrasar, so you will not use the tu, yo, nosotros, vosotros tenses for this one. Only the impersonal they and it. Does that make sense, Jessica? - katydew May 22, 2013
  • I think " quemar " or " tostar " are probably the transitive forms when someone burns something. Am I right here ? - britisk May 25, 2013
