Verb and Adjective Conjugation
In Japanese, verbs and adjectives conjugate when one wants to use non-past, past, negative and affirmative forms in their sentences
A non-past form is used when one wants to indicate present, future tense, and past form when wanting to express past, present perfect and past perfect tenses.
The conjugation is unaffected by the type of subject present in the sentence
Classified into three conjugation groups, Group I, Group II, and Group III which is dependent on their patterns of conjugation.
To obtain te-form(て), replace Ta(た) and Da(だ) at the end of each sentence that uses Plain past affirmative form with Te(て) and De(で) respectively:
Katta(かった) turns to Katte(かって) and Tabeta(たべた) changes to Tabete(たべて)
