Haïtian Créole Verbs

Postby Sisyphe » 2006-08-01, 5:01

Alcadras has asked me today if I could explain how to form verbs in the passive tenses. First of all, I was extremely puzzled when he asked me this..These are the only tenses we have to my knowledge:

Present
Gerond
Simple Past
Imperfect past
Future
Near future
Conditional present
Imperative

I don'T know how one would say the other tenses in KA, but I am feeling very inept in my language right now.

:cry: :( :cry: :(

According to the texts I have, the passive is not used except in VERY few cases. I can look at the examples given when I get home, but in each case they say that better KA is to use the active voice. Just my de goud...
