irregular verbs in spanish
What makes a Spanish verb such as "Dar" or "Ir" irregular?
Now, try this from the opposite angle.
A regular verb like comer: there three terminations ar-er-ir for all the verbs but regular verbs for the termination er look like this (comer)
yo com-o tú com-es él/ella com-e nosotros com-emos Ustedes com-en Ellos com-en
termination ar (comprar)
yo compr-o tú compr-as él/ella compr-a nosotros compr-amos ustedes compr-an ellos compr-an
termination ir (vivir)
yo viv-o tú viv-es él/ella viv-e nosotros viv-imos ustedes viv-en ellos viv-en
compare these to the ones that are irregular.

and dar would be: doy damos das da dan
...or pattern common to the "regular" verbs.
