Sanskrit Lesson 2 – Future Tense
May 27, 2009 5 Comments
This will introduce future tense. This is really simple if one knows the present tense.
For instance, “I read” gets translated as अहं पठामि, while “I will read” gets translated as “अहं पठिष्यामि”.
Similarly, You read = त्वं पठसि | and You will read = त्वं पठिष्यसि |
He/she reads = सः/सा पठति | and He/she will read = सः/सा पठिष्यति |
I eat. = अहं खादामि | and I will eat = अहं खादिष्यामि |
I read a book. = अहं पुस्तकं पठामि | and I will read a book. = अहं पुस्तकं पठिष्यामि |
He/she eats food. = सः/सा भोजनं खादति | and He/she will eat food = सः/सा भोजनं खादिष्यति |
So, future tense was actually simple, wasn’t it?
