Verbs of the 4th Conjugation (-VENI)

These verbs belong to the 4th Conjugation: venio, venire, veni, ventum. Note that these verbs are all compounds of the intransitive verb venio. Nevertheless, not all of the verbs in this episode are intransitive. A few are transitive. Listen carefully to the fourth principal part to determine whether the verb is more likely to be intransitive (vent-um) or transitive (invent-us).
