Italian Verbs (-ere)

To ask (present)- Chiedere (Chied+ere)

io (I)- chiedo

tu (you)- chiedi

Lui/Lei (he/she)- chiede

Noi (we)- chiediamo

Voi (formal you)- chiedete

Loro (They)- chiedono

Suffixes:

io- +o
tu- +i
lui/lei- +e
noi- +iamo
voi- +ete
loro- +ono


The difference between +are verbs and +ere verbs is that 'e' replaces 'a' in the conjugation for Lui/Lei and Voi.

So basically the suffixes would be:
