Causing… (Instrumental/Causative)

2020-03-25 Michael Conrad  2 minute read

To indicate that something is being caused to happen add one of the following special endings to the matching tense stem. There is a special pronunciation change based on the final sound of the stem you are attaching to!

This suffix only attaches to verbs that do not indicate something or someone doing for themselves. This suffix can not be used on verbs such as “He is running”. In such cases a verb that indicates some degree of “to make it”, “to cause it”, or “to motivate it” should be used instead.

Note: The present tense suffix attaches to the present tense stem, the past tense suffix attaches to the past tense stem, and so forth.

You are indicating a future event happening alongside another future event. The events are “beside” or “next to” each other.

This requires replacing the “-oi” ending with “-esdi”.
