Experience III, Lesson 18: Passive and Deponent Subjunctive

Learning how to form the different Subjunctive Verb times for Passive and Deponent Verbs

Time 1 and Time 2 Subjunctive are formed identical to how we learned to make our active to passive "flip" in Lesson I-25. Form the active subjective as learned in Lesson 14 then flip passive.
dono, donare, donavi, donatus - to donate
T.1s donet - he donates
Passive: donetur - it is given
T.2s donaremus - we donate
Passive donaremur - we are given
Time 3 and Time 4 Subjunctive are formed by adding the Subjunctive form of the verb "to be" from Lesson 15 to the fourth part of the verb, T.1s and T.2s respectively.
T.3s donaveris - you give
Passive: donatus sis - you are given
T.4s donavissent - they give
Passive: donata essent - things are given
Deponent verbs are formed the same way, but recall from Lesson I-30 they have active meaning.
morior, mori, mortuus sum (Gp. 3) - to die
T.1s moriar - I die
T.2s moreretur - he dies
T.3s mortuus sis - you die
T.4s mortui essetis - ye die
Obviously the meanings given here are if these sound indicative, which subjunctives often can. More will be learned about the meaning of these different times in the next lesson.
