There's alot of information to cover, so I'll post
this in a few emails so as not to annoy people with to
much info. I hope you read though. This is the first
time I'm posting this, and the first time I'm figuring
all this out for sure.
The Silindion Verbal System is kind of complicated.
Not because of the extreme exoticness of it, since
it's really quite a down-to-earth classical
ndo-European-like language in that respect. It has
present, past, imperfect, subjunctive, optative,
future, impersonal, imperative and passive finite
morphology. In its infinite morphology, gerunds,
gerundives of necessity, infinites, conjunctives (both
anterior and cooccuring), abessive gerundives, passive
participles, present participles, infinitives and the
like are found. Most of these are self-explanatory,
I'll go into special things later.
The complications arise when looking at how to
categorize the verbs into which verb takes which type
of allomorph for things.
To this end, verbs must be categorized into classes
such as the following:
I) STEM CLASS
II) INFINITIVE CLASS
III) PRESENT-STEM CLASS
IV) PAST-STEM CLASS
