VerbForm: form of verb or deverbative

Values: Conv Fin Inf Part

Fin: finite verb

Rule of thumb: if it has non-empty Mood, it is finite. In Modern Greek this applies to indicative and imperative forms.


Inf: infinitive

As “Infinitive” is marked a verb form of Modern Greek that is received from the perfective form of the verb and is used with the auxiliary έχω “have” to form certain composite tenses. It has no other usage in the language and it is not used as the lemma form (as infinitives are traditionally used).


Part: participle

Participle is a non-finite verb form that shares properties of verbs and adjectives. Modern Greek has a medio-/passive (or deponent) participle ending in -μένος/-μένη/-μένο that corresponds to the Ancient Greek present tense medio-/passive participle. In limited use are some participles ending in -θεις, -θείσα, -θεν inherited from classical Greek in the medio-/passive past tense.

Participles inflect for Gender, Case and Number and are marked for Voice but not Tense and Mood.


Conv: converb, transgressive

Non-inflecting verb forms ending in -όντας, -ώντας (adverbial participles) are non-finite forms that share properties of adverbs and verbs. They are assigned the tag VERB, a lemma in -όντας, -ώντας, the specification [VerbForm=Conv] and are tagged for Aspect and Voice.
