Structured data parsed from Wikipedia. Verbs Moods and tense aspect forms Moods and tense aspect forms The French language consists of both finite and non finite moods. The finite moods include the indicative mood (indicatif), the subjunctive mood (subjonctif), the imperative mood (impératif), and the conditional mood (conditionnel). The non finite moods include the infinitive mood (infinitif), the present participle (participe présent), and the past participle (participe passé). Finite moods Finite moods Indicative (Indicatif) Indicative (Indicatif) The indicative mood makes use of eight different tense aspect forms. These include the present (présent), the simple past (passé composé and passé simple), the past imperfective (imparfait), the pluperfect (plus que parfait), the simple future (futur simple), the future perfect (futur antérieur), and the past perfect (passé antérieur). Some forms are less commonly used today. In today's spoken French, the passé composé is used while the passé simple is reserved for formal situations or for literary purposes. Similarly, the plus que parfait is used for speaking rather than the older passé antérieur seen in literary works. Within the indicative mood, the passé composé, plus que parfait, futur antérieur, and passé antérieur all use auxiliary verbs in their forms. Subjunctive (Subjonctif) Subjunctive (Subjonctif) The subjunctive mood only includes four of the tense aspect forms found in the indicative: present (présent), simple past (passé composé), past imperfective (imparfait), and pluperfect (plus que parfait). Within the subjunctive mood, the passé composé and plus que parfait use auxiliary verbs in their forms. Imperative (Imperatif) Imperative (Imperatif) The imperative is used in the present tense (with the exception of a few instances where it is used in the perfect tense). The imperative is used to give commands to you (tu), we/us (nous), and plural you (vous). Conditional (Conditionnel) Conditional (Conditionnel) The conditional makes use of the present (présent) and the past (passé). The passé uses auxiliary verbs in its forms.
