This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can usually download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1872 edition. Excerpt: ...I wrote. All other tenses are formed by means of the auxiliary verbs. Ex.: Perfect Tense: idj Ijabe gefdjrieben, I have written. Pluperfect Tense: idj ijane gefdjrieben, I had written. 1st Future Tenso: idj Werbe fdjreiben, I shall write. 2d Future Tense: idj Werbe gefdjrieben Baben, I shall have written. The Subjunctive Mood has the same tenses as tho Indicative Mood. The Potential or Conditional Mood is expressed either by the Imperfect tense of the Subjunctive mood or by a circumlocution. 46.

The Present tense of the Indicative Mood of assonant verbs is formed by the following terminations: Sing. 1.--e 2.-U 3.--t Plur. 1.--en 2.--t 3.--en.
