The Lithuanian language
Lithuanian (lietuvių kalba) is an Indo-European language belonging to the Baltic branch of the family along with the only other surviving member of this group - Latvian (the two are not mutually intelligible). Interestingly, Lithuanian is believed to retain many features of Proto-Indo-European language, which makes it popular among linguists and has gained it a reputation of being an "ancient" or "conservative" language.
Lithuanian is spoken by app. 3 million people, most of whom live in Lithuania, where it is the official language. Lithuanian is written in Latin alphabet supplemented with some diacritics. In terms of grammar, it is a highly inflected language, which affects a variety of parts of speech, including verbs.
About Lithuanian conjugation
Lithuanian conjugation is a process in which Lithuanian verbs are modified from their basic forms so as to make their meaning more precise. In Lithuanian, you have three basic forms:
- the infinitive - for example, 'eiti', which means 'to go'
- the present tense third form - for example, 'eina', which means 'he/she goes'
- the past tense third form - for example, 'ėjo', which means 'went'
From of these simple forms, you form all the rest - ėjau (I went), eidavau (I used to go), eidavome (we used to go), eisiu (I will go), eik (go!), ėjote (you went), etc. are just variations of these basic three forms.
In Lithuanian, you can conjugate verbs by these major factors:
- person - the verb changes depending on the person it is referring to, e.g. 'aš skaitau', but 'ji skaito'
- number ('aš matau' but 'mes matome' - 'I see' versus 'we see'),
- tense (you have the present, past, past frequentative and future tenses in Lithuanian),
- aspect (aspect connects the Lithuanian verb to the flow of time; for example, you have 'rašei' and 'rašydavai' which both relate to the past, but one is frequentative),
- voice (indicates the actor - for example, passive or active, e.g. 'aš skaitau' vs. 'aš esu skaitomas' - 'I am reading' versus 'I am being read),
- mood (which indicates the attitude, e.g. you have 'naudokite' for '(please) use!', etc.),
In the Lithuanian CoolJugator, we try to provide you as many of these factors as possible, although we also try to focus on the most important aspects of conjugation. Moreover, we always try to show how forms relate to one another (see the verb tree above).
