Verbs of the Third Conjugation (Deponents & Semi-Deponents)

These verbs belong to the 3rd Conjugation: nascor, nasci, natus sum. Note that these verbs are passive in form but active in sense. Note also that the last five verbs of this audio are semi-deponents: gaudeo, gaudere, gavisus sum. As you will hear, I have decided to go against convention and not include the final "sum" for the third principal part. Just remember to add it mentally yourself.
