Variations Based On The Tenses Of The Urdu Verbs

Let’s look at how Urdu verb forms change when the tenses change, keeping the basic structure in mind. Only three Urdu verbs are here, representing three general tenses: present simple, past simple, and future simple. Thus, simple present tense has تا ہے/تی ہے (ta hai) / (ti hai) at the end of a sentence while Past simple tense has یا/یی (ya)/(yi) or یا تھا/یی تھی (ya tha) / (yi thi) representing the sentence structure. However, the Future simple tense happens to have گا/گی (ga) / (gi) at the end of its sentences.

Infinitive verbs in Urdu conclude with the syllables نا (na), although the ending syllables alter depending on the tenses. It also means that there are no irregular verbs in Urdu! Furthermore, the intransitive verb has no use in Urdu, so you do not need to understand the intricacies of transitive and intransitive verbs.

Other such Urdu verbs conjugating in all of the above forms are below.

However, Feminine ending syllables are تی ہے (ti hai), یی/یی تھی (yi) / (yi thi), and کرے گی (karay gi).

Note that the verb, Noun, Pronoun, subject, and object is different in making Urdu sentences. For example, “He eats food” “وہ کھانا کھاتا ہے۔” “Woh khana khata hai.” S+O+V

Helping Verbs In Urdu – Modal Verbs And Auxiliary Verbs

Helping verbs are important because they can shape a sentence correctly. They support the main verb and come in two forms: modal verbs and auxiliary verbs. Auxiliary verbs are here to express the tense or to highlight a point.

There are three basic auxiliary verbs in Urdu, each of which has several forms. Following are some of the auxiliary verbs.

Present Participle And Verb Stem 

The present participle is a word formed from a verb and has its usage as an adjective or verb tense. The verb of the present participle “laugh” is “laughing.”

A verb stem is a root that cannot stand on its own and carries the word’s tone.

A stem “friend” when added to the derivational suffix -ship to generate a new stem “friendship.” Thus, combining the stem “friend” with various suffixes will generate a new word.
