Continuing with verbs...

I forgot to add a little more about verbs. In Montreiano, the verbal
system is probably the least innovative feature of Montreiano. Only some
minor sound changes differentiate forms from either Spanish or Portuguese
(such as the infinitive form, as well as the 2sg. preterite forms). This
and the previous talk  about the simple tenses. The compound tenses (auel
(from habere) + verb) are to follow.

Present Subjunctive - Presént Deu Subjuntiuo

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    ame             coma            viua
2sg. ames               comas           viuas
3sg.    ame                     coma            viua
1pl.    amemos          comamos         viuamos
2pl.    ameis           comais          viuais
3pl.    amen            coman           viuan

First Imperfect Subjunctuve - Imperfecto Primairo Deu Subjuntiuo

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    amase           comese          viuise
2sg. amases             comeses         viuises
3sg.    amase           comese          viuise
1pl.    amásemos        comesemos       viuisemos
2pl.    amaseis         comeseis                viuiseis
3pl.    amasen          comesen         viuisen

Second Imperfect Subjunctive - Imperfecto Segundo Deu Subjuntiuo

Again, these forms were frozen into their forms before the sound shift of
final r-l

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    amara           comera          viuira
2sg. amaras             comeras         viuiras
3sg.    amara           comera          viuira
1pl.    amáramos        coméramos       viuíramos
2pl.    amarais         comerais                viuirais
3pl.    amaran          comeran         viuiran

Future Subjunctive - Futuro Deu Subjuntiuo

Because of influence of Portuguese, and Gallician settlers, these forms
ended up much like the Portuguese forms,where before they resembled the
Spanish forms.

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    amar            comer           viuir
2sg. amars              comers          viuirs
3sg.    amar            comer           viuir
1pl.    amáremos        coméremos       viuíremos
2pl.    amareis         comereis                viuireis
3pl.    amaren          comeren         viuiren

Imperfect Conditional - Condiçonau Imperfecto

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    amaría          comería         viuiría
2sg. amarías            comerías                viuirías
3sg.    amaría          comería         viuiría
1pl.    amaríamos       comeríamos      viueríamos
2pl.    amaríais                comeríais       viuiríais
3pl.    amarían         comerían                viuirían

Imperative - Imperatiuo.

        al                      el                      il
1sg.     -                      -                       -
2sg. ama!               come!           viue!
3sg.    ame!            coma!           viua!
1pl.    amemos!         comamos!        viuamos!
2pl.    ama!            come!           viue!
3pl.    amen!           coman!          viuan!

Negative Forms of the Imperative - Formas Negatiuas Deu Imperatiuo.

As in Portuguese and Spanish, these come fromthe Present Subjunctive

        al                      el                      il
1sg.    -                       -                       -
2sg. No ames!           No comas!       No viuas!
3sg.    No ame!         No coma!                No viua!
1pl.    No amemos!      No comamos!     No viuamos!
2pl.    No ameis!       No comais!      No viuais!
3pl.    No amen!                No coman!       No viuan!

Present Participle -  Participio Presént

        al                      el                      il
        amando          comendo         viuindo

Past Paticiple - Participio Pasiuo

        al                      el                      il
        amáo            comío           viuío

When used as an adjective, these agree in gender and number with the noun:

A spoken language  - Una lengua fauláa
The closed harbors - Las pòrtos çerráos

That should be it for the simnple  tenses. Stay tuned for the third
installment, the compound tenses (tèmpos compòstos)


Aunque vengas de rodillas
y me implores y me pidas
aunque vengas y me llores
que te absuelva y te perdone
Aunque a mi me causes pena
he tirado tus cadenas
