  • Preterite

    The source shows no sign of the preterite, which is presumably extinct here.

  • Present subjunctive

    The source indicates that the present subjunctive is generally extinct, save in certain fixed expressions for reflexes of ESSE, UELLE and HABERE, and in the reflex of POSSE.

  • Conditional

    Both continuants of the Latin pluperfect indicative and of the Romance conditional are generally given as conditionals, although no form of the latter is given for the 2SG, and none of the former for the 1PL and 2PL.
