The Serbian verb system



The infinitive ending of all Serbian verbs is either -ći or -ti.
This is how you will encounter them when you look something up in your Serbian dictionary.
For example:
бити / biti (to be)
питати / pitati (to ask)
Finding the infinitive stem of a verb:
suffix on -ti: delete this suffix to get the infinitive stem
ending on -sti /-ći: infinitive stem form = present stem form
You need the infinitive stem form to build the past and the conditional tense.
The four verb classes are named: a-/e-/je-/i-class

Finding the present stem of Serbian verbs:

1. pers. sentence in the present tense - present tense

The present tense form is needed to form the remaining times.
