Verb conjugation[edit]

Verbs are usually conjugated as such:

  • plasa - to place, put
  • plas - imperative, command
  • plasa - used with vil (will, would), ska (shall, should), ka (can, could), ma (may, must), etc., as well as the infinitive
  • plasé - the present tense
  • plased - the simple past
  • plaset - the past participle; can also be used adjectivally, in which case plaseta would be its definite and plural form
  • plasene - (a little more rarely used, but) present participle. The present participle is rarely used, but is sometimes. Usually you'd say "eg plasé" to say "I am putting". Also can be used adjectivally, in which case it'd be plasenéa. This is even more rare.

More examples:

Other rules[edit]

  • bidred
  • bidret
  • bidreta
  • bidrene
  • bidrenéa
