The "verbal template" (Is that even what it's called?) of ’iiƞìm is negative-mood-voice-verb-aspect-tense-ergative.argument. I still have to decide exactly what moods and aspects I want. I can't wrap my brain around the antipassive, but maybe I'll include it sometime.
Moods: indicative (unmarked), imperative -uá-
Voices: active (unmarked), reciprocal, reflexive
Aspects: simple (unmarked), perfective, imperfective
Tenses: past -nù-, present (unmarked), future -in-
As you can see, I haven't made all of the affixes yet. And I might change some of this, but that's why this is a scratchpad.
’iiƞìm has present, past, and future tenses. All verbs take the same affixes. Here is ànma, "see", with the tense suffixes:
Code: Select all
PRS ànma PST ànmanù FUT ànmain
