TE FORM Japanese te form is the command form, e.g. tabete kudasai (please eat) The te form is constructed in multiple ways depending on the ending of the verb in its dictionary form. RU VERBS To construct the te form of ru verbs, simply drop the ru off the end of the dictionary form and add te taberu – tabete okiru – okite miru – mite U VERBS Depending on the ending of u verbs, the te form can be constructed several different ways. For verbs ending in tsu, ru, or u, the te form is constructed by dropping the final syllable and adding tte (small tsu plus te). kaeru – kaette kau – katte For u verbs endng in mu, bu, or nu, the te form is constructed by dropping the final syllable and adding nde. yomu – yonde nomu – nonde For u verbs ending in su, the su will be dropped from the dictionary form and replaced with shite. hanasu – hanashite For u verbs ending in in ku, the ku will be dropped from the dictionary form and replaced with ite. kiku – kiite For u verbs ending in gu, the gu will be dropped from the dictionary form and replaced with ide. oyogu – oyoide IRREGULAR VERBS Certain te forms just have to be memorized. The te form for suru (to do) is shite. The te form for kuru (to come) is kite. Lastly, the te from for iku (to go) is itte, NOT iite. These unusual te conjugations just have to be memorized.
