Note on the Conjugation. 


[The Conjugation = Lesson No. 108 (onwards.)]

The Second Person Singular forms which begin with Thou, and Third Person Singular of the Present Indefinite ending in -eth, are old forms which are no longer used. Instead of the forms beginning with Thou, we use the Second Person Plural for the Second Person Singular. And instead of the form ending in -eth, we now use the forms ending in -s or -es.

Thus instead of Thou teachest, He teacheth (He cometh) etc., we say You teach, He teaches (He comes) etc.

In the Subjunctive Mood the colloquial forms are the same as those of the Indicative. Thus:

Older forms
Modern forms


If thou loveIf you love


If he loveIf he loves


If I be lovingIf I am loving


If thou be lovingIf you are loving


If he be lovingIf he is loving


If thou lovedstIf you loved


If thou wert lovingIf you were loving


If thou wouldst be loving   If you would be loving
