VerbForm: form of verb or deverbative

Even though the name of the feature seems to suggest that it is used exclusively with verbs, it is not the case. The Part value can be used also with adjectives. It distinguishes participles from other verb forms, and participial adjectives from other adjectives.

Fin: finite verb

Rule of thumb: if it has non-empty Mood, it is finite. In Ukrainian this applies to indicative and imperative forms, and to the special conditional forms of the auxiliary verb бути.


Inf: infinitive

Infinitive is the citation form of verbs. It is also used with the auxiliary бути  to form periphrastic future tense, and it appears as the argument of modal and other verbs.


Imps: impersonal

Impersonal form ending with -но/-то. In Slavic languages other than Ukrainian and Polish this form coincides with the neutral passive adjectival participle, but in those two languages the participle has a different ending: -не in Ukrainian and -ne in Polish, which is why it is treated as a separate verbal form.


Part: participle

The adjectival participle is a non-finite verb form that shares properties of verbs and adjectives. It inflects for Gender and Number but not for Person. Ukrainian has two types of participles:


Conv: converb, adverbial participle

The adverbial participle, also called converb or transgressive, is a non-finite verb form that shares properties of verbs and adverbs.
