  • rdfs:comment "A converb is a nonfinite verb form whose main function is to mark adverbial subordination. It is part of the inflectional paradigm of verbs, lacks specifications for tense (-aspect) and mood as well as for agreement, and generally modifies verbs, clauses or sentences, but not nouns or noun phrases.
