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

Cnd: conditional

The conditional mood is used to express actions that would have taken place under some circumstances but they actually did not / do not happen.

Examples

Pot: potential

The action of the verb is likely but not certain.

Examples

Opt: optative

The Finnish optative (or second imperative) is archaic, mainly appearing in poetry, and used in suppletion with the first imperative. In Universal Dependencies, the optative occurs in the FTB data but not in TDT and PUD.
