Serbian Verbs

Some Serbian verbs by frequency and needfulness. Note: a grave accent indicates rising stress (when known), a circumflex denotes long syllable. With verbs of regular conjugation, only the infinitive is given. Depending on the degree of irregularity, the 1st person singular present tense, 3rd person plural, and possibly past participle, are added. Change of accent is taken into account with irregular forms. Imperfective verbs are indicated by [I].
