3 German has many verbs that end in –ieren. They offer an easy way for German students with Latin-based language roots to expand their vocabulary because MANY (not all) of these –ieren verbs have related Latin-based verbs in other languages. In English, for example, some of these verbs end in –ate. Example: kollaborieren  kollabor / ieren  collaborate What are the equivalent English verbs for the following –ieren verbs? 1.dominieren 2.operieren 3.delegieren 4.tolerieren 5.renovieren 6.detonieren 7.spekulieren 8.demonstrieren

4 Many of the German –ieren verbs have the same root as an English verb and can be easily recognized if you cut off the –ieren part in German. You may have to make a minor change (e.g., k  c). Example: dividieren  divid / ieren  to divide What are the equivalent English verbs for the following –ieren verbs? 1.patentieren 2.addieren 3.trainieren 4.protestieren 5.explodieren 6.produzieren 7.existieren 8.deklarieren 9.konservieren 10.reduzieren

5 Almost all of the German –ieren verbs are regular in their conjugation and form the past participle by adding –t to the stem, without –ge in front (e.g., kopieren  hat kopiert). Please note: “verlieren” und “frieren” are not true –ieren verbs. They are irregular!! Example: diskutieren / diskutierte (simple past) / hat diskutiert What are the simple past and past participle forms of the following German –ieren verbs? 1.garantieren 2.probieren 3.reparieren 4.informieren 5.gratulieren 6.studieren 7.marschieren (comes with “sein”) 8.reagieren
