    The Guinea-Bissau Kriyol Verb

    The Guinea-Bissau Kriyol particles are markers placed before or after verbs to indicate tense, mood and aspect.

    These verbal markers can be combined to signal a variety of tenses and aspects. The unmarked verb can be used alone; it usually indicates the present of stative verbs, the past of non-stative verbs, or the imperative mood.
