Future Tense (Simple)
Simple future tense expresses an action that will be done in the future.
It is formed by adding suffixes to the verb stem plus gn. In Lesson 1,
we have seen that the term gn means is, am, are. In the future tense, it
also means shall or will. The future verb agrees with the subject
an Qiya gn I shall eat
enti genjto gn You will sleep (Singular)
gaim mihrotl ferdo gn Gaim will go to school
ent'n Qaltno gn You will see (Plural)
yn Awtitno gn We will succeed
naw sabidno gn They will praise
The agreement of the future verb with the subject is expressed by the
1st Person Singular -iya gn
2nd Person Singular -to gn
3rd Person Singular (masc.) -do or ro gn
3rd Person Singular (Fem.) -to gn
1st Person Plural -no gn
2nd Person Plural -tno gn
3rd Person Plura -dno gn
The simple future tense of the verb enkelna (to love)
1st Person Singular an enkeliya gn I shall love
2nd Person Singular: enti enkelto gn You will love
3rd Person Singular (masc.) ni enkeldo gn He will love
3rd Person Singular (Fem.) nri enkelto gn She will love
1st Person Plural yn enkelno gn We shall love
2nd Person Plural ent'n enkeltno gn You will love
3rd Person Plural naw enkeldno gn They will love
The second person singular and the third person singular (feminine)
have the same suffix form: -to gn. enkelto gn = You/she will love.
ferto gn = you/she will go. mehersto gn = you/she will study (learn).
