In generalizing what I have learned from Japanese "conjugations" I learned quite a bit.
I have come to the realization that the same verb forms ARE present in English although English uses cue words as opposed to changing the verb ending.
The verb forms: Present/future [es, s] [will],
potential[can, may, might],
passive, causative, passive causative,
Positive Past Perfect [did, (ed)
negative past perfect (never did, did not,
volitional let's, I suggest you...
imperative [(you) do this], conditional [when this happens that will happen], situational [IF this happens THEN this will happen],
representative [a long list of verbs, and finally formal,
and First person volitional (I want this to happen),
Can anyone give me a few of the cue words for passive and causative passive? ( I am having trouble with those two.... maybe I just need more coffee).
