More coincidences: crear, creer

You say, “ Other conjugations of crear and creer coincide in their spelling. Have a look a the following table; for crear it is the present indicative and for creer it is the present subjunctive. ”

Is there not still a difference in the yo form so that one is yo creo and the other yo crea?

Hola Linda

What we show there in that table is that some forms of crear and creer coincide, however for one verb it is the present indicative and for the other it is the present subjunctive:

 

Ella crea todos sus productos.

She creates all her products. 

(present indicative of crear, to create)

 

Puede que ella te crea algún día.

She may believe you one day. 

(present subjunctive of creer, to believe)

 

But both forms are the same: crea

I hope this clarified it.

Saludos

I believe "yo creo" is correct present indicative for crear; "yo crea" present subjunctive of creer.

I think you're correct Linda. Grateful if Quiziq expert could respond and if appropriate correct the table
