Verbs[edit | edit source]

Verbs conjugate to voice, mood, tense, aspect, and even negation, but not to person or number.  The subjunctive can only be used in the past or future; when not conjugated to tense future is assumed, and the imperative is always in the future, but is not conjugated to any tense.  If it is going to be negated, the ending is replaced with -xet in both the active and the passive

Indicative Subjunctive (P/F) Imperative (F)
Active -- ej- xud-
Passive on- at- -xep
Yes No
Past Per -pri -pret
Past -p(b)ra -bjet
Pres Per -dri -tret
Pres -d(t)ra -djet
Fut Per -vi -wet
Fut -wa -fjet
Cond Per -li -let
Cond -raj -ret

Syntax[edit | edit source]

The subjunctive mood is always used when introducing a new dependent clause.  The subject follows the verb in this case with a dash and the past tense often becomes the past perfect.  There are no words to introduce a new dependent clause except when a specific conjuntion is used.  For example:

  • I didn't know that he (had) left
    • Hu cäpexajpra ebacijopri-ri
  • I don't know if he left
    • Hu cäpexajdra elg ebacijobra-ri
