Before we get into the « when, » let`s talk about the « how. » How do subjects and verbs correspond in the past? Again, do you agree? Give me a wink, a nod or a thumbs up when I`m on something. As with the subsidiary verb to have, we begin with the corresponding preconjugation of being: I am (I am), do it (you are), he/she/we are (er/she/one), we are (we are), you are (you are all), they are (they are, male and female). What is the direct object? The. Wherever it is: before the verb to be, so there is a correspondence between the direct object and the past part I brushed them to myself is the correct answer (and not as written above). Agreement with pronominal verbs is less easy. Since pronominal verbs use being as an auxiliary, they usually need a correspondence with the subject. And of course, those annoying irregular verbs like all (go) and have (be). The most common reflex verb, in which past participation could change its pronunciation, is whether > it is sitting. In most other common reflex verbs, past participation ends with a vowel. For example, in it`s dressed, the extra -e does not change the pronunciation. As with the references, if you are referring to men and women in groups, just keep the subject and past male participation. They do not always need to match past French scores to the genre and number of subjects. But sometimes.
But the verbs of Have need coherence in a very specific construction: the past participation must correspond to the direct object if it precedes the verb. You have it. Matching topics and verbs in the past seems daunting, but if you can practice and memorize these three categories, you`re well on your way to communicating past events with more skill and confidence! The embodiment of good conjugations for the French past – and all correct verbal chords – can make the memory of past events even more painful. You have seen that in forms of time assembled like The Compound Past, most verbs have used as an auxiliary. See z.B. Regular verbs conjugated (+ have) in The Compound Past (past). For these verbs, past participation remains unchanged. Anders ist es jedoch, wenn es um Verben geht, die être als Hilfsverbehr in The Compound Past verwenden, wie die konjugierten Kommen- und Gehenverben (+ to be) in The Compound Past (Konversationsvergangenheit), Konjugat mourir, naître, dying, devenir, rester (+ être) in Le Passé Composé (Konversationsverben) und Konjugierte reflexive Verben (+être) in Le Passé Composé (Konversationsvergangenheit).
