I will quickly go over how to use certain tenses in Anglish.
In compound verb phrases, the second verb is left in the infinitive (-en ending) while the first verb is conjugated for the subject.
|I will eaten||We wollen eaten|
|Thou wilt eaten||Ye wollen eaten|
|He/she/it will eaten||They wollen eaten|
A note for the imperfect: make sure to the present participle(-ende ending) for the second verb.
|I was eatende||We weren eatende|
|Thou wert eatende||Ye weren eatende|
|He/she/it was eatende||They weren eatende|
|I woulde eaten||We woulden eaten|
|Thou wouldest eaten||Ye woulden eaten|
|He/she/it woulde eaten||
They woulden eaten
|I eat||We eat|
|Thou eat||Ye eat|
|He/she/it eat||They eat|
|I ate||We ate|
|Thou ate||Ye ate|
|He/she/it ate||They ate|
Now, the subjunctive looks like normal modern English but don't be fooled! They are not used in regular present and past tense, but rather, in a mood.
To form the subjunctives for other verbs, simply take the infinitive and drop the -en ending. Been-->Be and for past, take the unconjugated base ending or if it's irregular, take the irregular on its own. Eaten-->ate Walk-->walked Be-->were(been is an obvious exception)
In normal English I would say:
I will buy the newspaper so that I can read it.
In Anglish however, it would be said:
I wille buyen the newspaper so that I read it.
Past subjunctive, in normal English I would say:
I wish I could walk faster.
I wishe I walked faster.
If it is your will --> If it be thy will.
I want you to leave. --> I wante that thou leave.
If I were to drink poison, I would die. --> If I were to drinken poison, I die.
I need them to hear me. --> I neede that they hear me.
I went to the car so that I could find my keys. --> I wente to the car so that I found my keyen.
