Verb conjugation modifies the verb in person and number, gender (in the past tense and the subjunctive mood), and voices.Conjugational Verbs have forms of person, number and gender, time and mood, while unconjunctional - the infinative, the participle, and the adverbial participle

(деепричастие - similar to gerund) only have some of these forms.

The Infinitive

The infinative tells you a type of action without spesifics about gender,person time and mood. It is not changeable. Infinitives have the following endings: -ть, -ти : кричать, расти (to cry, to grow). In infinitives ending with -чь (стеречь - to guard), the sound [ч] is actually both an element of the stem and a suffix.

There are 2 Conjugation in Russian. There are also some exceptions.
