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
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
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.
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.
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
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
