VerbForm: form of verb or deverbative

Principally, VerbForm is an inflectional feature of verbs and auxiliaries, however, it is also used as a lexical feature of some adjectives and adverbs.

Fin: finite verb

Verbs that have a non-empty Mood are considered finite.


Inf: infinitive

Infinitive is the citation form of verbs and it appears as the argument of modal and other verbs.


Sup: supine

Supine is a rare verb form, which has disappeared from most of the other Slavic languages. It is used instead of infinitive as the argument of motion verbs.


Part: participle

Participle is a non-finite verb form that shares properties of verbs and adjectives. We distinguish two groups of participles: l-participles that can either be classified as verbs or adjectives, and all other participles (usually ending in , -n, or -t) that are always classified as adjectives, regardless of whether they are used as attributes or predicates.

As verbs, L-participles are used to form the past and future tense, and the conditional mood in present or past tense. As adjectives, both groups of participles can be used either as noun attributes (ukradena denarnica “stolen wallet”), as subject complements (denarnica je ukradena “the wallet is stolen”) or in passive constructions (denarnica je bila ukradena “the wallet has been stolen”).


Conv: converb / adverbial participle

The converb, also called adverbial participle, is a non-finite verb form that shares properties of verbs and adverbs. In Slovenian, converbs are always tagged as adverbs.
