That is strange. Please give me the version number of Parley you are using 
(0.9.0 / KDE 4.0.x).
Editing should work. Maybe you have to click Apply in the dialog once?
Can you also check if the word type is set to "verb" in the combo box in the 
word type editor? (Edit->Grammar->Types - Special meaning)

If you chose to practice verbs but Parley finds no conjugations this will 
So it should be solved by solving the above ;)

> Can you tell me, how to configure Parley to lern the verbs?
David is right, it will improve, right now it's not great fun yet.
My main concern is that in the current version progress is not saved for the 
individual conjugation forms, so it's quite hard to get right.
