Mood: mood

Mood is a feature that expresses modality and subclassifies finite verb forms. It is an inflectional feature of auxiliaries and verbs.

Ind: indicative

The indicative can be considered the default mood. A verb in indicative merely states that something happens, has happened or will happen, without adding any attitude of the speaker.

Examples

Imp: imperative

The speaker uses imperative to order or ask the addressee to do the action of the verb.

Examples

Cnd: conditional

Generally, the conditional mood is used to express actions that would have taken place under some circumstances but they actually did not / do not happen. In Slovenian, present and past conditional are formed using the participle of the content verb and a special conditional form of the auxiliary verb biti “to be”. Thus, only this form is marked as Cnd, regardless of whether it is used to form a conditional or any other type of modality.

Examples

Conversion from JOS

All verbs with VForm=present and VForm=future are converted to Mood=Ind, all verbs with VForm=imperative are converted to Mood=Imp and all verbs with VForm=conditional are converted to Mood=Cnd. The non-finite verb forms (participle, infinitive, supine) do not have any Mood.
