Designed to help in studying or working with foreign languages, the Conjugator program is a handy substitution for all those fat grammar books. It is implemented as one "host" program with many individual language plug-ins available, each of which provides the conjugation functionality for a particular language.

It is important to know that most language plug-ins use rules and exceptions specific to the language to perform the conjugation. Because of that, they do not have a clear way of identifying made-up verbs and so they will make up conjugations for them. Irregular verbs are usually taken into account. Please write us if you find an omission!

How to use it
Conjugation is performed based on a verb infinitive and for specific tense. The output consists of 6 verbs (3 persons for single/plural form).

Conjugating is a simple as this:
1. Download and install the Conjugator shell program file and the language plug-in you want;
2. Run the program and select the language in which to conjugate from the drop-down list at the top of the main screen (if more than one plug-in is installed);
3. You may select a tense from the list of tenses shown. The first tense in the list is selected automatically. You can change that selection at any time.
4. Enter a verb infinitive in the "Inf." field. The program will be updating the output list while you are typing!
5. If you want to copy a specific conjugated form for use in another application, simply tap on it to select it and copy it to the clipboard.


Processing information

Unknown Regular Verbs
At this point, the program doesn't make difference between "right" and "wrong" regular verbs. As long as the verb fits the lexical "pattern" of the language it will be conjugated. At some point, Beiks is planning to link Conjugator with other programs like BDicty Dictionary Reader to validate the source verb.

Unknown Irregular verbs

Unlike the regular verbs, the plug-ins usually carry the table of the irregular verbs for the language along with them and check your entry against it. If the verb is found in that table, it will be conjugated correctly. Otherwise, it will be treated as a regular verb.

Tenses

The tool will display all supported tenses for the selected language. Some of these tenses may be out of use in the modern use of the language, others may be missing. Normally, there should not be missing languages.

Impersonal and defective verbs

Impersonal verbs (those that only exist in the infinitive and 3rd person singular) and defective verbs (where one or more tenses or persons are not used) are shown correctly as far as possible. However, authorities differ as to the details of these verbs and some forms are technically possible but never heard in contemporary usage .

Trial & Full versions
The shell program is free to download and use (see below). It manages the common user interface and does not perform any language-specific operations. For each language we have developed conjugating support for, there is a file or set of files, that need to be installed in addition to the shell program.

The downloadable modules are Trial (demo) versions, which have some functional limitation. Most often, this would be that certain tenses will not be supported. Instead, when selected to perform conjugation, the output list will display "DEMO" message. Upon purchasing the appropriate module, users will be able to download the fully functional file(s) for the language.
