Reverse verb lookup | Find a Spanish verb infinitive by its inflected forms

The Search is capable of finding Spanish verb infinitives by their inflected forms. It supports misspelled words as well, where an accent or another Spanish special character is missing.

For instance, if you look for hablamos Search will recognize that it’s an inflected form of hablar and provide related details:

  • hablar has an inflected form hablamos in the first person plural of the tense Presente, Indicativo mood
  • hablar has an inflected form hablamos in the first person plural of the tense Pretérito Perfecto Simple, Indicativo mood


Try a few words like funde, para, hable to see that they sometimes appear in multiple tenses for a given verb, at times differing only by an accent. This exercise helps to get rid of some confusion around Wasn’t this form already used in another tense?

Regular usage of the reverse verb lookup or general search is most convenient with our Search Engine Plugin / Search Provider: Reverse Spanish Verb Lookup. More info on using search plugins: support.mozilla.org.

Spanish verbs translation to English

Look for a Spanish verb in its infinitive form or any of the conjugated forms to find a translation from Spanish to English.

Misspelled words are recognized as well, where an accent or another Spanish special character is missing.

English verbs translation to Spanish

Look for an English verb to find all the Spanish verbs that translate to it.

In every language there are many words that, sometimes in different contexts, have the same or similar meaning. So for instance, if you look for drink or to drink you will get beber, tomar, consumir, etc.
