In English, we have a present tense (eat) and a past tense (ate), with participle forms (eaten) and progressive forms (eating). Everything else a “modal” form – i.e. ‘will eat’ for a future tense.

In Tengarsa, you have present and future tense – the past tense is a modal construct. All verbs have strong verb and weak verb tendencies, with the basic tenses made via changing the first vowel of the verb, and the aspects done by adding suffixes to the verbs.

Adjectives in Tengarsa have ‘strong’ and ‘weak’, with strong being the basic noun-phrase adjective (modifying a noun) or functioning as a noun, and weak forms either modifying verbs or another adjective.

The weak adjective class is essentially an adverbial role, but Tengarsa does not recognize them as two word classes, but instead as two halves of one word class.
