Tenses Edit

Absolute Tenses Edit

Twistrillian has not 2, not 3, not 4, but 15 different absolute tenses. Here they are:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
More then a decade ago A year ago A week/month ago Yesterday Earlier today A few hours ago A few minutes ago+Present Present moment
9 10 11 12 13 14 15
A few minutes hence+present a few hours hence Later today Tomorrow A week/month hence A year hence More than a decade hence

NOTE: tenses 5&11 are more than five hours ago/hence, respectively.

You'll notice there is a triple-overlapping going on over the present. If the present moment was caused by something/started in the past and is not going to affective future and it will end now, it is marked with the 7th tense. If it will not end now or will effect the future but began earlier, it has the 8th tense. If it will affect the future or will not end now, but it was not created earlier, its is marked with the 9th tense. If it started now and will end now, not affecting the future or being a cause of the past, it gets the 8th tense. The 7th and 9th tenses also have other meanings.

These are the affixes for each tense:

1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8
-(o)decæ -(o)jia -(o)wimo -(o)dæno -(ə)dæn -(ə)hou -(ə)min N/A
9 10 11 12 13 14 15
