Irregular 1st declension nouns

Postby davidbarrett80850 » Fri Apr 18, 2014 4:41 pm


Can anyone tell me what is the correct 3rd Principal Part (i.e. 1st Person, Active Indicative Perfect) of necō?

I have found it listed as an irregular verb in a number of texts where the 3rd Principal Part is listed as necuī but then again I have found other texts which list it as necāvī!

Allen and Greenough's Latin Grammar states that "necō has regularly necāvī... except in composition" but this doesn't help me to understand :-P
