Italian is the national language of Italy. It is a Romance language proceeding from the Latin. Italian is spoken in Italy and Switzerland by 60 million native speakers.
Italian verbs are divided into four conjugation groups according to the ending of the infinitive: 1. -are (e.g., amare 'love'), 2. -ere (temere 'fear', stress on the ending), 3. -ere (e.g., perdere 'lose', stress on the root vowel) and 4. -ire (e.g., capire 'understand'). Two of the groups end in -ere, the difference is in the stress. (Cf. Romanian)
There are some verbs ending in -rre, e.g., porre 'put'. These and dire 'say' and fare 'make' belong to the 3rd conjugation. Most of the irregular verbs are in the 3rd group.
