Appendix:Latin third conjugation

The Latin third conjugation has an infinitive ending in '-ere'.

Some third conjugation verbs include an -i in the stem, which is included before the ending in present, future, imperfect active and passive (not in future passive, where there is no -i stem, it is only -e stem, tegō for example) except for the 2nd person singular present passive.
