The future tense

The -i of the stem is omitted in front of -e, as it is not needed to keep the soft sound of the infinitive.

-care -gare

giocherò giocherai giocherà, etc. pagherò pagherai pagherà, etc.

An -h is added to verb stems ending in -c and -g in order to keep the hard sound of the infinitive.
