Lesson XXXIV

Present Passive Infinitives

Translation practice

Present Passive Infinitives

You have already learned the present active infinitive. It’s the 2nd principal part of the verb:

portare: to carry

docere: to teach

munire: to fortify

present passive infinitives1
Present Passive Infinitives

Now it’s time to learn the present passive infinitive. It’s easy!

Just change the final –e to an –i:

portari: to be carried

doceri: to be taught

muniri: to be fortified

present passive infinitives2
Present Passive Infinitives

The only verbs that DO NOT follow that simple rule are 3rd conjugation. Remember that they always cause trouble and do things a little differently…

These are the –o/–ere verbs,

like these:

pono, ponere

duco, ducere

present passive infinitives3
Present Passive Infinitives

Instead of changing the –re to –ri, 3rd conjugation verbs go nuts and chop off their ENTIRE -ere, then replace it with just an –i!

ducere: to lead

duci: to be led

ponere: to place

poni: to be placed

But aside from the nutty 3rd conjugations, present passive infinitives are pretty easy to recognize and translate.
