- The base form of the verb is always used.
(The "root" of the verb, and the affixed man- form: såga/mañåga, fåhan/mamåhan/manmamåhan, etc.)
- Hu-type pronouns are always used, rather than yo'-type pronouns, even with "um" verbs.
(If a pronoun is going to be used, it has to be a hu-type.)
- Verbs which normally use man- in the non-future form will take on fan- in the future form.
(When the normal base verbs uses man-, change it to fan- in the future: mañåga => fañåga, mamåhan => famåhan, etc.)
Simply put, to say "I will..." you just use "Para bai hu...." in front of the verb phrase.
