Hi.. these questions have kind of been on my mind lately, and I was wondering if
someone could answer them:

1. What are some different verb types, and what do they mean/ function as? Like,
for example, transitive, intransitive, auxillary, and... uh, it's a verb form
in French that I don't remember the name of, but an example of one would be "se
laver", I think.... (and any other ones?)

2. What is the difference between an inflectional language, and an agglutinating
one? What, for that matter, is an agglutinating language? (I read about it
somewhere, I just REALLY don't understand the concept...)
