Spanish verbs ending in -gar replace the -g- with a -gu- in El Presente de Subjuntivo in Spanish. This is to preserve the sound from the infinitive.

Hi, a suggestion: “This is to preserve the hard G sound from the infinitive”. (The Spanish G sounds like the jota when it comes before an E or and I: G+E: gente (people), recoger (to collect), alegra (happy) G+I: digital (digital), girasol (sunflower), elegir (to choose)).

Hola Shirley

Thanks for the suggestion. We re-worded it so it's now mentioning the "hard g sound".

Saludos
