VERB: verb


A verb is a member of the syntactic class of words that typically signal events and actions, can constitute a minimal predicate in a clause, and govern the number and types of other constituents which may occur in the clause.

Note that the VERB tag covers main verbs (content verbs), but it does not cover auxiliary verbs and copulas, for which there is the AUX tag. See the description of AUX for more information on the borderline between VERB and AUX.

Armenian verbs can take the following morphological forms:

There are participial forms (verbal adjectives) that are tagged as verbs rather than adjectives (ADJ). See below for examples.


Border cases

Resultative, subject and future-II participles are word forms that may share properties and usage of adjectives and verbs. Note, that in release 2.2 both core participial forms (used to form the moods) and participial adjectives (used in nominal predication with copula, and to modify nouns) are tagged VERB. For example:
