VerbForm: form of verb or deverbative


Verb’s forms and certain deverbal forms are marked with a VerbForm feature. The finite verb forms are marked with value Fin, here Uralic tradition matches guidelines quite well. Other values are described very differently even between Uralic grammars and care should be taken mapping them to UD. Some hints:

As a rule of thumb, be systematic in features and values of non-finite verb forms and ensure distinctions are retained, so they can be later automatically converted if needed. Also keep in mind that you can record traditional grammar stuffs in the XPOS and MISC fields, while UD versions make things comparabler between languages.

Since VerbForms are so various in Uralics, the language-specific documentation should include an overview to this.

VerbForm in other languages: [bg] [bm] [cs] [en] [fi] [fr] [ga] [hu] [hy] [it] [kpv] [myv] [pcm] [ru] [sl] [sv] [tr] [u] [uk] [urj]
