Fieri
 
 
Fio, factus sum, fieri.
Meaning: to be made, become.
Forms: the long -i- of the present stem is preserved before vowels also; before -re and -ri there appears the additonal vowel -e-, cf. fieret, fieri; the forms of the present stem are on the pattern of the IV conjugation. The forms of the present stem are of active voice, but with passive meaning; for this reason fieri is traditionally classified as a neutropassive verb.
Usage: fieri is used as passive of facere to do and the compound tenses of facere are used as compound tenses of fieri; the derivatives of facere with preserved -a- (such as calefacere to make warm, patefacere to open up) usually form their passive with fieri:
calefacere : calefieri to be made warm
patefacere : patefieri to be opened up
