Operatives, you have already begun to attune yourself to the imperfect endings of the third person singular and plural. You will recall that the hallmark of the imperfect tense is the -ba- that appears before the ending. The Demiurge wishes now to make you aware the complete set of endings for the imperfect tense. Consider the following:
|1st Person (ego)||amābam||I was loving||amābāmus||We were loving|
|2nd Person (tū)||amābās||You were loving||amābātis||You all were loving|
|3rd Person||amābat||He/she/it was loving||amābant||They were loving|
You’ll quickly realize that with the exception of the first person singular (-ō has become -m), all of the endings are the same as they are in the present tense. Again, only the -ba- serves as the indicator that a verb is in the imperfect tense.
