    The Baluchi Verb

    Balochi verbs have two stems, the present-future stem and the past stem. The infinitive is formed by adding the suffix -ag to the present-future stem of the verb.

    There are no clear rules for how the past stem is formed from the present-future stem. It is therefore necessary to know both the present-future and the past stem of a verb in order to be able to conjugate all its finite forms correctly
