- First conjugation: Verbs ending in -er, the prototypical verb is parler "to speak". It is the most common conjugation group.
- Second conjugation: Verbs ending in -ier, sometimes -er and regularly trigger palatalization, the prototypical verb is ģager "to play".
- Third conjugation: Verbs ending in -r, but always subject to metathesis if the final consonant cluster deemed unpleasant (*hegr → reg "to do", *pierdr → prierd "to lose").
- Fourth conjugation: Verbs ending in -ir, the prototypical verb is partir "to divide".
To conjugate a verb, one needs 5 principal parts to complete them. It may differ according to conjugation groups.
