VERB: verb

Definition

A verb typically signals events and actions; it can constitute a minimal predicate in a clause. Verbs in Estonian associate with grammatical categories like person, number, tense, mood and voice.
The verb tag in Estonian UD v 1.3 does not cover auxiliaries AUX.
Auxiliaries are:
olema “be” and in rare occasions saama “get” are auxiliaries that form periphrastic tense forms;
modal verbs are võima, tohtima “may”, saama “can”, pidama “must”, näima, paistma, tunduma “seem”;
ei and ära “not” in negative verb forms.

Participles are word forms that share properties and usage of adjectives and verbs. Depending on their syntactic function they are tagged as VERB or ADJ in Estonian UD.

Gerunds and infinitives are tagged as VERB, except for grammatized word-forms.
