## Irregular preterites of verbs "dar", "ser", "ver", "ir"

There are four additional verbs that have irregular conjugations. They are: "dar" (to give), "ver" (to see/to watch), "ser" (to be) and "ir" (to go). One thing these verbs have in common is that they do not need an accent on the conjugation of "yo" or "él", even if some of the endings resemble those of regular verbs. The verbs "ir" and "ser" have the same conjugation; the context tells you the verb being used when conjugated.
