GCSE Latin: Indicative Passive Imperfect


Imperfect Tense (Passive)

Like the imperfect active, there are multiple ways to translate the imperfect passive:

portabar I was being carried
I used to be carried
I was carried

The tense is formed in the same way as the imperfect active, but using the standard passive endings (-r, -ris, -tur, -mur, -mini, -ntur).
