Mood: mood

Mood

Mood is a feature that expresses modality and subclassifies finite verb forms. In Bulgarian there are three moods: Indicative, Imperative and Conditional.

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. Indicative covers all the 9 tenses and their passive forms in Bulgarian. It also covers the evidential forms.

Examples

Imp: imperative

The speaker uses imperative to order or ask the addressee to do the action of the verb. The forms in Bulgarian are synthetic.

Examples

Cnd: conditional

The conditional mood is used to express actions that might happen under certain circumstances or that would have taken place but they actually did not / do not happen. It usually presupposes volition. The forms in Bulgarian are analytic.
