This means that if you see a deponent like conor, you must translate it as an active verb; here: "I try." In the dictionary, you will see the verb for "to try" listed as
- conor, -ari, -atus sum = try
- laudo, -are, -avi, - atus = praise
Except where the forms are missing, deponent verbs are conjugated just as other verbs in their conjugations.
