Did you notice the "-is" ending on each previous word? It's a sound marker for ears and a visual marker for eyes.

The "-is" ending indicates "I" am the one doing the verb action. A "First Person Singular" verb ending.

Green is used to show active replaceable parts of verbs. Black will be the color of the verb root, the part that doesn't change. The green part tells you who is "doing" the verb and when. These are called the person and tense. Think of it as "who is speaking and when they spoke or are speaking." The infinitive form of a verb gives you none of that information. The infinitive merely says "To do" whatever the verb states. Here are the infinitive forms for these verbs.
