General InformaitonEdit

Named after the Armenian province in which the small Arabic-speaking community migrated to. I know that this is highly improbable, but that's not the point of this.

Verbs have five parts based in triliteral roots: the present tense, the perfect tense, the gerund, the active perfect participle, and the passive perfect participle. The sample verb g-t-b, to write, will be used for denoting vowel forms. 



Person and NumberEdit

Verbs have a suffix (or prefix in the first person's case) that agrees with the subject's person and number.

Mood, Voice, and TenseEdit

Tense and voice depend on the arrangement of vowels in between the consonants. 

Present Perfect
Active Passive Active Passive
Indicative CCăCă- قْتَبَـ CáCCă- قَاتْبَـ CCeC(ă)- قْتِبـ
Subjunctive CCăC(ă)- قْتَبـ CCăCă- قْتَبَـ

Verbal forms merged over time, resulting in a more analytical tense and mood system using auxilary verbs. Subjunctives must be used with g-ā-n, to be, conjugated in the subjunctive followed by the verb conjugated as well in the subjunctive (g-ā-n's passive conjugation is only used when used as an auxillary for the subjunctive).

g-ā-n Present Perfect
Active Passive Active Passive
Indicative gún كُون gán كَان gín كِين
Subjunctive gúnă كُونَ gánă كَانَ
