Verbs - The Past and Future Tenses
There are three finite tenses in Kalonese - present, past and future. To distinguish further between them, adverbs are used preceding the verb. Of these three, the past tense is the most difficult to form. Nevertheless, here are the instructions on how to form it: Remove the "na" from the infinitive in the same way as you would to form the present tense, except add in the past tense subject pronouns. They are:
|To (past)||Na'e||To (past)||Na'e|
For example, we will look at the verb "To have been":
|To have been||Na'esa|
In the case of having the ending of a verb starting with "d", in second person plural, replace "d'de" with "dei".
The future tense is much easier than the past. You simply form the present tense and add "tra" as a suffix:
|To (future)||Na..tra||To soon be||Nasatra|
The subjunctive of a verb is formed in the following way:
"vitra (person) + (present infinitve)"
For example, "May you be well!" would be translated as: Vitra da nasa salo!
