Section 1: Chapter 31: Cum Clauses; Fero


Cum clauses indicate temporal, causal or adversative relationship to the main clause of the sentence, and can be translated with our English "since," "because," "after," "when," or even "although." The mood of the verb in a cum clause is indicative when it is strictly temporal, but it is subjunctive everywhere else.



The verb fero has some irregular features in the present system. It is a third conjugation verb, but the short -e- of the conjugation drops out completely before an ending that begins with an -r, -s or -t. The principal parts are suppletive, meaning they come from a different verb, and can be difficult to identify when the verb has a prefix. 


Practice with the forms of the verb "fero."
