A participle is an adjective or complement to certain auxiliaries that refers to participation in the action or state of the verb; a verbal form used as an adjective. In Hilinqwo, a participle is formed by appending the suffix -is* (present) or -as* (past) to a base. The participle base can be used like any other base, modified with the appropriate ending to form a gerund, present adjective, past adjective, or adverb.
