Activating the function:
menu "Verb Tables ", "Conjugation Scheme" or by pressing F3
Note: By pressing the F3-key again, the function will be deactivated.
The function "conjugation scheme" shows the rules, which apply to build the currently searched verb. This is done depending on the searched tense and under consideration of irregular conjugation forms. This function, due to this, serves as an additional help if you currently cannot remember the applicable conjugation rules for the searched verb and you don't want to watch the solution yet.
If for example the Imperfetto of the Italian verb "mangiare" (to eat) is searched, then as conjugation scheme the singular- and plural forms of the Italian Imperfetto are shown:
Singular I verb primitive + avo Singular II verb primitive + avi Singular III verb primitive + ava Plural I verb primitive + avamo Plural II verb primitive + avate Plural III verb primitive + avano
To emphasize the searched tense, the respective singular/plural-line is marked in blue colour. In addition to that in the upper area of the screen the information is given that "mangiare" is a verb following the "iare"-conjugation.
Another example would be the Indikativ, Präsens of the German verb "sich waschen" (to wash oneself):
Singular I ich + verb primitive + e mich Singular II du wäschst dich Singular III er/sie wäscht sich Plural I wir + verb primitive + en uns Plural II ihr + verb primitive + t euch Plural III sie + verb primitive + en sich
The singular II- and singular III-conjugations are irregular and are printed in bold.
With "verb primitive" is meant the root of the verb that serves as base for building the other verb-forms, e.g. the Italian verb credere consists of the verb primitive "cred" + the verb extension "ere".
Show irregular forms
At the lower edge of the function the switch "show irregular forms" is located. If this function is activated, then irregular forms are displayed like shown in the example above. If this function is deactivated, then the text "irregular" is shown instead.
