Mood: mood

Mood is a feature that expresses modality and subclassifies finite verb forms.

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

Prec: precative

The precative, a polite request or encouragement, is formed with the combination of the particle and the preterite form of a verb.

Examples

Proh: prohibitive

The prohibitive expresses negative commands and combines the negation with the present tense. Optionally, the particle may be added to stress the command.
