Do you remember how "mujer" was conjugated? Well, there are more fish in the sea
OH my God, I found the conjugation of verb Tapir jajajjajajajaja
oh now it make sense to me Mujer end with er as a verb
I wonder if there are more nouns ending in ar, er or ir
oh here is one tapir (it is a mammal)
These examples are rather funny for a native, I must admit. I also think they are doing their best with the conjugation tool.
I have forwarded your post to Chris, Samdie, let's see if he can use some of it.
I'm reporting it to the website's creators, and I'm far from criticising... no way. Well, and if it amuses you a bit, that'll do no harm, right?
Not at all surprising (given the grammatical sophistication that we know how to build into software). Before you get too critical, ask yourself "Can I formulate a rule that infallibly identifies the infinitive of a verb?"
In practice, there are three possible approaches. 1) Create a list of all the verbs in Spanish (or equivalently, mark all the words in the dictionary to indicate that they are/are not verbs) 2) Assume that any word that ends in "ar"/"er"/"ir" is a verb and proceed accordingly 3) Create a list of exceptions to approach #2 and when a word ends in [a/e/i] consult the exceptions list to decide if it really is a verb.
The problem with the approach #1 is that it requires a lot of effort and the list may require a lot of space (or time to consult) if it's separately maintained. Simply adding an indicator to indicate that something is a verb speeds up the consultation but adds to the space requirements (because, now one need to indicate that all the other words are not verbs).
The problem with approach #2 should be obvious because that's what we're now doing and it results in many words that are not verbs being "conjugated".
Pprobably the best compromise is #3. It reduces the space requirements of #1 (but may increase the processing time). However, the initial effort of creating a list of exceptions is still considerable. Some computer accessible dictionaries allow various kinds of "fairly sophisticated" searches but I doubt that there is one from which one can request a list of words ending in "[a/e/i]r" that are not verbs. I even doubt that one could ask for three lists (for "ar", "er" "ir") that are not verbs.
Could someone please tell me the difference between using the verbs mar and ver?
mujerear is certainly a verb and meant to womanize. :p
mujer is a noun you never can conjugate it ok
Well, you joined SpanishDict after they had removed the "conjugated" mujer But we had a good laugh about it!
