Conjugation of rąbać (to chop wood)

Please help with the conjugation of rąbać (to chop wood)?

As far as I know, and in general (because I know how many iregularnies there are, hence the question),

verbs ending in -ać are conjugated with -am, -asz, -a, etc,

so according to this rule, rąbać should become rąbam, rąbacz, rąba, rąbamy, etc.,

but it sounds really funny, so I just wanted to ask.

I think it belongs to the -ę -esz -e -emy -ecie -ą conjugation, but wait until someone confirms this.

rąbam, rąbacz, rąba, rąbamy

Yes, this is funny. My Polish grammar is all gone now, but I will nevertheless give you the correct declension of the verb "rąbać".

rąbię, rąbiesz, rąbie, rąbiemy, rąbiecie, rąbią

Trąbić, however, does not follow exactly the same pattern:

trąbię, trąbisz, trąbi, trąbimy, trąbicie, trąbią

correct declension

Did I say declension? I did not mean it - conjugation of course. :-)

Thanks Vince and Mushroom. This morning when I woke up, I thought about the
-ę conjugation, and wondered, and now you've both confirmed it.
