Prihodnjik – the Future Tense

If you understand the Slovene Past Tense quite well, then the Slovene Future Tense will be a real piece of cake for you!

The formula is very simple:

Future Tense = To be (Future Tense)¹ + Participle² + L_³

¹To be (Future Tense)

Here’s some new stuff, the verb To Be – Biti, in the Future Tense.

Jaz

bom

ne bom

Ti

boš

ne boš

On, Ona

bo_

ne bo_

Midva, Medve

bova

ne bova

Vidva, Vedve

bosta

ne bosta

Onadva, Onidve

bosta

ne bosta

Mi, Me

bomo

ne bomo

Vi, Ve

boste

ne boste

Oni, One

bojo, bodo

ne bojo, ne bodo

The other two elements, ² Participle and ³ L_ is exactly the same as in the Slovene Past Tense, I have already explained in the previous lesson, so for those who missed it, please have a look here.


The concept of Slovene Verbs is not overly difficult, but what makes it a challenge is really all the exceptions that follows a “different set of rules”. So, in my opinion, the easiest way to remember the conjugation, is to know the singular masculine form and go from there.

Here’s an example of a regular verb ending with -ti like delati, to work/to do .

Male

Female

Singular

Jaz bom delal

Jaz bom delala

Dual

Onadva bosta delala

Onidve bosta delali

Plural

Oni bodo delali

One bodo delale
