Amo, Amas, Amat pt. II (Your first Latin lesson!)
I never thought that this post would get so much attention. But, it seems like there are quite a few people in the world looking for what amo, amas and amat mean, and find my blog in their search.
I think all the following is the correct information, but we’re only on our 5th week of Latin, so please forgive/correct if I’ve erred.
Every verb in Latin has a pronoun enclosed.
So, these are the endings of the verbs in the first conjugation:
1st person -o -mus
2nd person -s -tis
3rd person -t -nt
The stem for “to love” is ama.
amo = I love
amas = you (singular) love
amat = he, she or it loves
amamus = we love
amatis = you (plural) love
amant = they love
There are also endings for nouns, depending on how they’re used in a sentence, and that’s called “declensions,” but we haven’t gotten there yet.
Hope that helps!!
