Actions are what a theing can do (‘verbs’ in English).

There are no irregular (‘strong’) verbs in Synglish. The only exception, i.e. the only verbs that are exceptions to the rule, are the actions ‘to b’ (‘be’) and ‘to v’ (‘have’).

Otherwise, the rules for actions as follows:

  • past tense: + d
  • future tense: l before (cf. ‘ll)
  • perfect tense: v (cf. ‘ve) or s (cf. ‘s) before, without apostrophe, and +d
  • action still in progress: + in (cf. in’)

There are no conjugations, depending on the subject and number.  In all cases you use the same word. For the infinitive one may use the prefix ‘2’
