A few days into our Amharic lessons, we realized that learning verbs was going to be very, very complicated. I was able to get pieces of the puzzle from our various books and iPad apps, from our wonderful tutor, and from a Peace Corps volunteer in Ethiopia. Still, what we needed more than anything were multiple examples of conjugated verbs - in English letters since we haven't learned fidel yet - categorized by how they're conjugated. Like this book of Spanish verbs but in Amharic. I couldn't find anything like that. So for the last few weeks I've been working on making my own verb chart. I tried to check every infinitive against two different sources, and our tutor looked over the whole list, so I think it's fairly accurate. Any mistakes in it are entirely my fault.
You can download the verb chart here. The first page has a pronunciation key, a few definitions, and a key to the kinds of verbs organized by color. The next thirty-four pages contain 101 verbs, listed alphabetically by English word. I hope people who are starting out in Amharic find it useful.
