How to Conjugate Verbs in the Bengali Language

Updated on April 12, 2017

Learn Bengali Verb Conjugation

If you're trying to learn the Bengali (Bangla) language, verb conjugation may seem complicated, but it's based on a set of rules. These rules will take time to learn. But once you master them, you'll find conjugation much easier. Focus on one verb class at a time. Really master each one before going onto the next.

Learning Bengali Verb Classes

In Bengali, verbs typically come at the end of a sentence. There are five classes of Bengali verbs. The way you conjugate the verb depends on the class. The classes are

1. CVC, VC

2. CAC, AC

3. CA

4. CV,

5. CACA, CVCA

You have to learn how to form the endings for each of these five classes. There are other verb forms to learn, like infinitives and imperatives. But the following rules will help with basic communications.

So, what does CVC mean? Or CA? CVC means Consonant Vowel Consonant. CA means Consonant with an -a ending.

Kor is CVC because it consists of a consonant, vowel, consonant. Kha is CA because it has a consonant and an -a ending. In Bengali, kh is a single consonant sound. This is similar to digraphs (th, ch, wh) in English, where two letters make one sound.

CVC and VC Verbs

This is how you conjugate verbs with CVC endings. I'm going to use kor (do, make) and por (read, study) in these examples. These rules will also apply to VC verbs, such as uth (rise). As you will see, one set of rules can apply to numerous verbs.
