Spanish has so many persons, tenses, and moods there are not enough verb conjugations to go around. Some conjugations have to do double duty.
Many conjugations are also words in other parts of speech, such as vino, which is a verb conjugation and also "wine." The conjugation meaning is never shown in a Spanish-English dictionary.

A suit of clothes
Traje translates in the dictionary as "suit of clothes." But it is also the pretérito of the verb traer, to bring. Traje un traje (por si refresca). "I brought a suit of clothes (in case it gets chilly)."
