Activating the function: menu "Modules", "Conjugation tables", "English"
Also see: English conjugation rules
With help of this function you can let Coniuno display the conjugations of arbitrary English or American verbs. The indication of the wanted verb is done in the lower right corner in the edit-field "Enter verb". Coniuno will conjugate the verb after pressing the enter-key and display the conjugated forms in the list-boxes "Indicative", "Conditional" etc.
Below the edit-field are located two further text fields that inform whether the verb is a strong or a weak verb and which conjugation scheme the verb is following. The strong verb "to bring" for instance is shown here with its forms "to bring, brought, brought". All irregular conjugation forms are displayed on blue ground (marked). Regular conjugations instead are shown on white ground (not marked).
Accordingly the conjugations within one tense are shown marked/not marked. In case of the verb "to bring" this would be the past-forms, as well as the Participle II.
Located in the lower area of the screen are the options "build passive forms" and "male forms".
With help of the option "build passive form" you can tell Coniuno to build the current verb with its active, respectively passive conjugation forms. Coniuno however does not check if the particular verb is used at all in passive form in English. When calling the conjugation table for the first time, Coniuno recognises automatically, whether the training mode for active or passive verbs is activated (also see Options, passive) and displays the current verb accordingly. Please note that a change of the active/passive setting here only has effect on the verb in the conjugation table. If you want to change the general active/passive setting for the verb training, please check the settings in Menu "Extras", "Options", "Passive".
The option "male forms" can be used to let Coniuno build the Singular III as male form ("he") or female form ("she").
By pressing the F4 key the English verb table is opened for the conjugated verb. This can either be a regular or an irregular verb.
In the conjugation table always the male forms of a verb are shown.
Depending on the options for the English language, the verbs will be built following British English or American English conjugation schemes (also see Options and English conjugation rules). You can define using the switch "US-English" how the current verb in the conjugation table shall be built.
The following verb-schemes are supported:
1. Verb = go / to go 2. Verb + Text = to go back home quickly 3. Verb + Reflexive = shave oneself 4. Verb + Text + Reflexive + Text = to shave oneself in the morning
It is not necessary that verbs are stored in the training-verbsets ("verbset 1,2,3,4,5" or "example verbs"), to be conjugated here. Coniuno conjugates verbs independent from the verbsets (also see conjugation rules).
It can however be necessary to provide certain indications for verbs that are not recognised automatically by Coniuno. This is for example the list of strong verbs. If these indications are missing, then Coniuno works with default settings. For further information regarding this topic, see administer irregular verb-infos.
