Moods[edit | edit source]
Mood or modality is about how the speaker relates to what is being said. English four moods that are being used these days. They are:
- Indicative indicates an assertion ("the house is red"), a question ("is that your car?") or denial ("I did not do that").
- Imperative indicates a command ("paint that house!"), an advice ("Bring a spare coat!") etc.
- Subjunctive is used in a variety of cases such as "If I were a millionaire I would buy a house".
- Infinitive mood is used in dictionaries: "to eat".
Moods changes the inflection of verbs in Mapudungun. There are three moods.
