Tenses, moods, aspects!

Friends, conlangers, net.people!

Please help me to come up with as many tenses, moods and aspects --
natlang, whatever-lang or newly imagined as you can.  I'm totally revamping
my lang Funus, having decided that all derivation is actually related to
these categories.

The lang has C-C-C roots and v-v infixes.  The latter indicate TMA.  If the
word has the form CvCCv it is a finite (or in native parlance "moving")
form, and if it is CvCvC it is infinite/"resting" (nouns are participles!)
