Yo in Spanish

Now a G, Now an O, GO!

Venir and tener aren’t the only verbs that add an extra ‘g’ before the ‘o’ in the ‘yo’ form. Many commonly used vebs in Spanish are irregular in the ‘yo’ form, even if that is the only irregularity they have.

For example, look at the table below.

to put
to bring
to value
to leave, go out
to do, to make
yo pongo traigo valgo salgo hago
pones traes vales sales haces
Ud., él, ella ponen trae vale sale hace
nosotros/as ponemos traemos valemos salimos hacemos
vosotros/as ponéis traéis valéis salís hacéis
Uds., ellos, ellas ponen traen valen salen hacen

Note that traer has an additional irregularity in the ‘yo’ form, with an ‘i’ in addition to the extra ‘g’.

Thinking about VALER

You may be interested to know that the word “vale” is quite frequently used in Spain. For example, the phrase “no vale” is often used to mean, “It won’t work,” or “It’s no good.” The phrase “vale,” on the other hand, is a catch-all phrase meaning, “Okay,” or “It’s fine.” You’ll hear it a lot!
