Hello, well
I have been trying to learn japanese near 1year now, though Im not great on it because I dont really have someone to practise with and all a bunch of reasons, anyway, today in another forum someone posted this img218.imageshack.us/img218/9240/japaneseverbbases.gif (please do put the url code before the "img218")
so i dont really know the meanings of the verbs in kanji, kana, hiragana, but I am pretty sure I will get use to it some day, and I will know it very well, but my problem is, this was made buy an english guy and even living in uk I am not that of a good thing in engish, so could anyone explain me what is ;
"yodan verbs", "ichidan verbs", "stem"
and in this thing of "TE-form" and "TA-form",
I really dont understand it, so Im a bit lost, could anyone help me?

By the way, could you tell me if this is a good table or am I copying somthing not good?

"Not good," I'm afraid. Although "yodan" is the term for archaic Japanese, the conjugations in that table are the modern Japanese ones.
As for the terms "godan," "ichidan," "stem," "te-from," "ta-form," refer to the wiki pages below.
Oh thank you very much for your help :)
I will then look for another table.
