Verbs and Intention

Verbs are not conjugated for tense or aspect, but they are conjugated for mood, more specifically for intention. The standard verb form is the intentional form, i.e. the action is performed on purpose.

The accidental and attenpted forms are made by changing I to Y and suffixing Ci, where C is the fort-shifted version of the final consonant (like deriving an adjective) in the accidental, or the lenited form of the final consonant (like making a plural) in the attempted.

There is also an imperative form, made by replacing I with IAY.

meli love (on purpose)
melyti accidentally love
melyni try to love
meliay love!

isan eat (on purpose)
ysandi accidentally eat
ysannyi try to eat
iaysan eat!

duvid ride (on purpose)
duvydja accidentally ride
duvydzi try to ride
