Determining the etymological origin of the term conjugation means having to go to Latin. And that word emanates from the Latin word "coniugatio", which is composed of three perfectly defined parts: the prefix "con-", which is synonymous with "together"; the name "iugum", which can be translated as "union or yoke"; and finally the suffix "-tion", which is equivalent to "action and effect".
Conjugation is the action and effect of conjugating (state the different forms of a verb according to their modes, times, people and numbers; combine several things with each other; compare one thing with another).
In the grammar , therefore, the conjugation is the ordered series of the different forms of the same verb . The concept is also used to name the groups in which verbs of equal flexion are classified.
Conjugation, therefore, depends on issues such as verbal preaching according to the time of the action, the information on whether this action has been completed and the number of participants in the process.
Taking this as a reference, we can use the term "laughing" as an example. In it it can be discovered that it is in indicative mode, that it is plural, that it belongs to the first person and that it is in the past tense.
For example: verb conjugation "to drink" in its various forms it is formed by the terms "Drank", "I drink", "I will drink", "you drank", "babies", "You will drink", "Drank", "baby", "Will drink", "we drank", "we drink", "we will drink", "You drank", "Baby", "You will drink", "Drank", "Drink" and "Will drink". Each of these conjugations allows to form different expressions: "Thank you, but I don't drink when I work", “After dinner, you will drink the chocolate liquor that I prepared”, “We drank until dawn”, “The young people drank without stopping until Manuel arrived”.
When it comes to conjugating any verb, it is important to be clear that there are two types of verbal forms. Thus, on the one hand, there are the personal ones, which are those in which both the time factor and the subject in relation to it are relevant.
On the other hand, there are the non-personal forms of the verb, also known by the name of non-finite, which have the peculiarity that they do not require a certain subject. Specifically, there are three types of these verbal forms: the infinitive, which usually ends in "ar", "er" or "go"; the participle, which ends in "ado" or "gone"; and the gerund, which is identified because it bets on ending in “ando” or “endo”.
Examples of participles are eating, sleeping or snoring, while in the participle they act as dreamed, danced or desired samples. On the other hand, examples of gerund are walking, laughing or singing.
In the field of biology , the conjugation is the fusion of cell nuclei for reproductive purposes . It is known as bacterial conjugation to the process of transferring genetic information that begins in a donor cell and is directed to a recipient cell.
The notion is also used in the physical to name the operation that converts the states of a particle into states of its corresponding antiparticle.
