Activating the function: menu "Modules", "Search Verbs"
With help of this function you can search for infinitive-forms of verbs belonging to an arbitrary conjugation-form. For this purpose, this function searches for possible regular- and irregular verbs that result in the same conjugation-form that you searched for.
The following options are available:
A query can be done for all languages separately or for any combination of languages.
Only show best results
When searching for an infinitive form normally more than one possible result is found. However not all of these results really indicate valid verbs. For example, the search for singular II, Indikativ Präsens of the German verb "lachen (to laugh)" (singular II: du lachst (you laugh)) leads to the results "lachen" and "lachsen". "Lachen" is correct, "lachsen" is not a valid German verb. Per default Coniuno only shows those results that are most possibly correct (here "lachen"). Deactivate this option to get all results displayed.
Check irregular verbs for similarities
Coniuno checks if a given verb-form belongs to an irregular verb. This comparison normally only is successful if the given verb-form matches exactly to any of the irregular ones. With this option you can tell Coniuno to accept an irregular verb as possible solution also in case there is a certain similarity between the searched verb-form and the irregular verb-form.
You have seen the verb-form "brought" and want to know to which verb this belongs.
Now you enter "braught" instead of "brought" (a instead of o) as searched verb-form. Normally Coniuno now returns as a possible result only the non-existing verb "to braught", but does not provide the solution that you were after (which is "to bring"). With the "check similarities"-option activated, Coniuno finds a similarity of 85.71% (6 of 7 characters matched) between "brought" and "braught" and returns "to bring" as possible result.
Note that you can adjust how restrictive this check shall be. The option "Similarity xx %" defines how exact the match between the searched verb-form and the possible solution must be. In the example above the similarity was set to 80%.
Hint: The search for similarities does not work for regular verbs, as Coniuno considers each verb per default as a regular verb. For Coniuno there is no difference between e.g. "to play" and "to plaay".
