Spanish II

Spanish is really fuckin' easy if you just give it a little bit of fucking attention and want to learn this shit. Get it? The fuckin' spanish alphabet is like the same shit as in English, except less stupid. instead of all your goddamn different sounds for the letters like in fucking English you have letters that make the same sound almost always. Almost fuckin' always, understand? *ABCDEFGHIJKLMNÑOPQRSTUVWXYZ* Almost the same fuckin' letters. They just have different names. Ah, Beh, Seh, Deh, fuckin' Efe, Geh, Hache, EEEE, Jota, Ka, Ele, Eme, Ene, Enye, O, Peh, Koo, Erre, and you better fuckin' trill that R you bitch, Ese, Teh, Oo, Uve or Ve do i like look like I fuckin' care, Doble Ve because unlike in fuckin' English fuckin' Sanchez over here knows that a fuckin' W doesn't look like two Us, Equis, I Griega, and fuckin' Zeta. Same fuckin' shit except it sounds like Japanese or something instead of the degeneracy in English. In Spanish you've got the same fuckin' parts of speech as in English. Your pronouns and nouns and verbs and all that bullshit. Most of it's the same fuckin' thing, but verbs are different, understand? In Spanish you have like 8 fuckin' verbs that matter and the rest are nonsense you can look up whenever it comes up. But there are three types of verbs and really only two that fuckin' matter. Those are -ar verbs and -er/-ir verbs. They're fuckin' called that because that's how they end in the fuckin' infinitive form. The difference between the two groups is how you conjugate this shit. -AR VERBS AND -ER/-IR VERBS CONJUGATE DIFFERENTLY, UNDERSTAND? Let's look at a simple fuckin' verb, /amar/. It means fuckin' --To Love-- like in fuckin' fairy tales or whatever. Got it? In Spanish, you don't need two fuckin' words to describe the action, it's just the fuckin' infinitive. You probably noticed that amar is a fuckin' -ar verb by now. If you wanna say that you like to fuckin' love things, like you're fuckin' Omiwa or something, all you have to say is --/me gusta amar/--. I like to love. That's all it is. Fuckin' dead simple. In Spanish we have tenses, just like in fuckin' English. But unlike in English it's just fuckin' built into the verb, you don't have to deal with bullshit like --I used to-- or --I had begun-- or --I will--. But each tense is another fuckin' conjugation. So we'll just look at the fuckin' present tense. There are six conjugations for a tense, and they match the perspective and number of the subject. To describe them, we first have to learn some fuckin' pronouns. | I | Yo | | You | Tú | | He/She/You (Formal) | Él/Ella/Usted | | We | Nosotros | | You all | Vosotros | | They | Ellos/Ellas/Ustedes | A few fuckin' things to point out here. We can split these into a table | Person | Singular | Plural | |--------+-------------+------------------| | First | Yo | Nosotros | | Second | Tú | Vosotros | | Third | Él/Ella/Ud. | Ellos/Ellas/Uds. | Or in fuckin' English | Person | Singular | Plural | |--------+----------+---------| | First | I | We | | Second | You | You all | | Third | He/She | They | Also, no one uses fuckin' vosotros. Except Spain. That's bullshit. Don't use it. So how do you conjugate fuckin' amar? The regular conjugations for fuckin'-ar verbs in the present tense looks like this. | -o | -amos | | -as | -áis | | -a | -an | Like I fuckin' said you don't have to care about fuckin' áis though. So to conjugate this shit all you do is drop the -ar and attach one of the fuckin' endings. --I love-- is just fuckin' --/amo/-- Understand? Fuckin' Simple. The regular -er/-ir verbs are just another fuckin' chart. | -o | -emos | | -es | -éis | | -e | -en | But -er and -ir verbs have the SAME FUCKIN' CONJUGATIONS. THAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT, UNDERSTAND? Same fuckin' shit.
This isn't really a good order to go in but next I want to talk about the past tense. Remember all those fuckin' conjugations from before? Well there's more. This is probably the shittiest part of Spanish when you're trying to fuckin' learn. But it does have an advantage over English: conciseness. You don't have to to say "I have gone" or "I did it once." The verb tells all of that. There are two simple past tenses in Spanish. The first is preterite, or /--pretérito--/. You use this when you want to talk about something that happened and was finished in the past. If you went somewhere, or made something, or rekt some scrubs--something specific and complete. | | AR | | ER/IR | | |--------+----------+---------+----------+---------| | Person | Singular | Plural | Singular | Plural | |--------+----------+---------+----------+---------| | 1st | -e | -amos | -i | -imos | | 2nd | -aste | -asteis | -iste | -isteis | | 3rd | -o | -aron | -io | -ieron | Practice fucking saying these out loud if you want to learn this shit. Ey, Ahstay, Oh, Ahmos, Ahstais, Ahrohn. e aste o amos asteis aron. DO IT. Ee, Eestay, Eeoh, Eemos, Eesteis, Ee-erohn. i ist io imos isteis ieron Fuckin' SAY IT. You'll notice that the fuckin' nosotros form for -ar verbs is the same as in present tense. Again, you're using preterite to describe events that started and finished at definite points in the past, or states that have ceased. The other form is imperfect, or el /--imperfecto--/. This is either something that happened /regularly/ or began in the past but might still be continuing. If you rek scrubs every day, rather than in one specific instance, you use imperfect to describe it. It's frequently used to describe the way things used to be: I fuckin' went to my grandmother's house every summer when I was younger. | | AR | | ER/IR | | |--------+----------+---------+----------+--------| | Person | Singular | Plural | Singular | Plural | |--------+----------+---------+----------+--------| | 1st | -aba | -ábamos | -ía | -íamos | | 2nd | -abas | -abais | -ías | -íais | | 3rd | -aba | -aban | -ía | -ían | You'll notice the first and third-person singular forms are the same fuckin' ending. Don't question it, it just means less work. Say 'em. aba abas aba ábamos abais aban ía ías ía íamos íais ían. Good. I wanna introduce a few specific verbs here, but it's not because I like you, it's because they fuckin' SUCK ASS. These are some of the toughest irregular verbs. Irregular, as in they don't follow the normal conjugation rules. The good news is they're super fucking common. I leave out vosotros forms in the following tables because they're useless. Note that Ir and Ser SHARE PRETERITE CONJUGATIONS. - Ir :: To Go | | Imperfect | Preterite | |------+----------------------------+----------------------| | Yo | iba (I used to go) | fui (I went) | | Tú | ibas (you used to go) | fuiste (you went) | | Él | iba (he-she-it used to go) | fue (he-she-it went) | | Nos. | íbamos (we used to go) | fuimos (we went) | | Uds. | iban (they used to go) | fueron (they went) | - Ser :: To Be (permanence) | | Imperfect | Preterite | |------+---------------------+--------------------------| | Yo | era (I was) | fui (I had been) | | Tú | eras (you were) | fuiste (you had been) | | Él | era (he-she-it was) | fue (he-she-it had been) | | Nos. | éramos (we were) | fuimos (we had been) | | Uds. | eran (they were) | fueron (they had been) | | | | | - Ver :: To See/Watch | | Imperfect | Preterite | |------+------------------------------+---------------------| | Yo | veía (I used to see) | vi (a text editor) | | Tú | veías (you used to see) | viste (you saw) | | Él | veía (he-she-it used to see) | vio (he-she-it saw) | | Nos. | veíamos (we used to see) | vimos (we saw) | | Uds. | veían (they used to see) | vieron (they saw) | Yeah. They totally change stems and it's a pain in the ass.
yay my favorite thread has activity
yo como pene
yeah but last time I checked my keyboard doesn't have a N~ key on it so this language is useless.
Oh and where the hell do áé and all those come from? I don't see them in the alphabet. Why are those not separate letters while N~ is?
