German Language Handout 8 Goethe-Zentrum Lahore (Tel. 36673110) Page 1 / 2 SEPARABLE VERBS / TRENNBARE VERBEN Some verbs get a small Prefix at the beginning which changes the whole meaning of the verb. For example: kommen = to come, an/kommen = to arrive, mit/kommen = to come with fahren = to go, ab/fahren = to depart, zurück/fahren = to go back They are called separable verbs because when used in a sentence, the prefix (and only the prefix) is put at the end of the sentence, separated from the main verb. However, if a modalverb is used in a sentence, then the whole verb, including the prefix, is put at the end of the sentence. e.g: Shalimar Express fährt um 5 Uhr 30 ab . Du willst nach Karachi fahren. Ich möchte auch mitfahren . The perfekt form of the separable verb is built by putting „ge“ between the prefix and the main part of the verb, e.g: Usman ist heute aus Karachi an ge kommen (an/kommen) Der Mann hat die Frau ein ge laden . (ein/laden) Some important separable verbs (including their Partizip II forms) DAS VERB PRASENZ
