According to my own analysis, there are three moods (indicative, conditional, imperative), but I wonder what to do with my supines... I use them in many different ways:
Code: Select all
------- USE 1: "in order to" mašk-im-an koro (nak) šayo=š žanj-anti go-1SG-IPFV there (to) 2SG.DAT=to see-SPN Meaning: "I go there in order to see you." ------- USE 2: Gerundive I kwa-mi-š-an sjo=š žanj-anti COP-1SG-Ø-IPFV.IND DET.SG.DAT=to see-SPN Meaning: "I must see that" (= I am obliged to see) ------- USE 3: Gerundive II kwa-mi-š-ai sjo=š žanj-anti COP-1SG-Ø-COND DET.SG.DAT=to see-SPN Meaning: "I should see (= It's necessary) ------- USE 4: Accusative + Supine yež-im-an šai mič-iwa want-1SG-IPFV 2SG.ACC eat-INF Meaning: "I want to eat you." yež-im-an šai mič-anti want-1SG-IPFV 2SG.ACC eat-SPN Meaning: "I want you to eat." yež-im-an woi šayo=š mič-anti want-1SG-IPFV 3SG.ACC.masc 2SG.DAT=to eat-SPN Meaning: "I want him to eat you."
1. Is my terminology correct or would you use different names for my supines and gerundives?
2. Would you classify them as moods? (I think supines are rather infinite verb forms, but I'm not sure about the gerundives...)
(BTW don't be surprised about the forms "šayoš" and "sjoš" --- accusative objects of finite verbs and infinitives become prepositional objects of supines and gerunds... "ša + DAT" is like a "sub-ordinated accusative case" to avoid confusions in the syntax)
