I was wondering if there is a reason the "c" turns in a "j", It seems to me that
conduce would sound fine in front of "e" and "i" (perhaps just a change in front of the "a" and "o".
Do you know of any reason for the change?
That's an interesting question...
I am not 100% sure but it may be because in Latin, the conjugation in the Preterite tense contains letter x, e.g: conduxi. The x from the Latin turned into letter j later on in Spanish, so I am guessing that may be the reason.
Hope this helps,
