Spanish - 3 verb conjugations and very regular
Romanian - 4 verb conjugations and highly irrrrrregular

then you can NOT know if it's "eu cânt" or "eu cântez",
it's random and you have to learn them.
While in the Spanish you don't have to guess if it's "yo canto" or "yo cantezo".

I guess it all depends on what you consider "very regular". The Spanish simple past in particular has a lot of peculiarities to it.
No, but with a verb like tender, you have to guess whether it's yo tiendo or *yo tendo.
What verbs have a distinct supine form which isn't identical to de + the participial form?
Levente.Maier wrote:but the Spanish "e" verbs always end in o, es, e
and the Romanian "e" verbs can end in -, i, e or esc, esti, este
Levente.Maier wrote:About the supin you're right, but doesn't also Spanish also have that or something similar.

Levente.Maier wrote:Let's compare it to Spanish and find out why
Levente.Maier wrote:1. Plurals
Spanish - adding "s"
Romanian - adding "i", "e" or "uri" pretty randomly
Levente.Maier wrote:2. Genders
Spanish - 2 genders: o=masculine and a=feminine
Levente.Maier wrote:5. Spelling
Spanish - totally phonetic
Romanian - totally phonetic + the letter "i" like in the word "copiii" ( 3 times )
