  • Seriously it means to modify the verb. In a lot of languages the verbs me to...whatever. To sing...to dance... and then you conjegate it by making it personal.

    Spanish...To sing.cantar
    ................I sing...canto
    .................you sing ...cantas
    ................he/she/it sings ........canta
    ................we sing..........cantamos
    ...............they sing.........cantan

  • No, no, no. In English, you conjegate to explore the verb in the different tenses and with/without helping verbs. You know; present, past, future, progressive and such.

    I bring. I brought. I have/had brought. I will be bringing. I was bringing.
    He brings. He brought. He has brought.
    Crap like that.
    In English, everything is personal, right.

  • To conjugate means to give the various forms of the verb. These forms can distinguish number, person, voice, mood, and tense and other categories.
