Verb template of nef.a (to be)

PRE ROOT TENSE

NEG an(a) | nef | ena PAST

PRB atm(i) | nef | a PRESENT

ABL alm(a) | nef | amata FUTURE

QUE hal(a) | nef | e GERUND

  • The left column contains prefixes such as "an(a)" (Negative), "atm(i)" (Probable), etc

The center column is the verb's root, which stays the same. The right column contains suffices, which indicate tense, like "a" (Present tense)

Conjugations of Raname nefa. (Is good.)

Raname nefena. (Was good)

Raname ananefena (Wasn't good)

Raname atminefamata. (Will probably be good/Might be good.)

Raname atmananefamata. (Will probably not be good/ Might not be good)

Verbs can be added after a gerund-ized verb to function as an auxilliary by adding an "e" as the suffix of the base verb and "cutting off" the vowel ending of the modifying verb

eg Indrete tabul (Think+write= to remember)

eg Indrete yantar (Think+walk= to have wandering thoughts, to space out)

eg Laskane isn/isan (Love+see=to be attracted to someone/ something)

eg Hanade laskan (Speak+love=to talk sweetly, lovingly)

eg Atare indret (Listen+think= to listen carefully, to contemplate what is said/heard)

eg Hanade indret (Speak+think= to think before one talks)

Verbs can also be repeated in this way to show continuity or repetition

eg Indrete indret (Think+think= to mull over, to think deeply)

eg Kande kan(a)d (Eat+eat= to eat much, to pig out)

The tense and probability etc of the verb pair can be controlled by the first verb.

To make it past tense, conjugate the last verb from the -a ending to the past tense -ena ending,

but then make it a gerund by changing it to -ene

eg Indretene tabul (Think(past gerund)+ write To have remembered)

eg Anlaskanene isn/isan ((Negative)Love(past gerund)+ see= To have not been attracted)
