Lesson 27: Passive of Times 4-6
Learning the passive forms of verbs of Time 4-6
- Times 4-6 do not follow the flip system of Times 1-3, instead they form a compoud verb with "to be" as learned in Lesson 15.
- There is a problem not found in any other language, because these forms will look like Times 1-3, but really have meanings for Times 4-6 as learned in Lesson 24.
- Time 4
- 4th part of the Verb + Time 1 of the verb 'to be'
- laudatus est = he has been praised, he was praised
- sumus laudati = we have been praised, we were praised
- Time 5
- 4th part of the Verb + Time 2 of the verb 'to be'
- vulneratus erat = he had been wounded
- vulneratae erant = the women had been wounded
- Time 6
- 4th part of the Verb + Time 3 of the verb 'to be'
- nunciata erit = she will have been announced
N.B. The 4th part of the verb will change to match the number and gender of the subject. "laudata est=she was praised", "laudata sunt=the things were praised"
