Verb Conjugation

Is there a way to see all of a verb's conjugation, as on the app? Very useful, but can't seem to find it on the desktop site.

Did you try "Show Inflections"?

No, I hadn't. Beautiful, thank you!

“Show Inflections” is certainly helpful. It lists off “Non-Past”, “Polite Non-Past”, “Past”, “Polite Past”, “Te-Form”, “Potential”, “Passive”, “Causative”, “Causative Passive”, and “Imperative”, as well as “Affirmative” and “Negative” forms for all of the previously mentioned forms.

However, it is missing a number of forms. Those are “I-Form”, “Provisional Conditional Eba”, “Conditional Ra” and “Volitional”.

If you’re curious about those forms, here’s a link to find out more: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Japanese_verb_conjugation
