Gerunds and infinitives are for sissies.  Verbs are where its at.  I knew an ablative tense joke once- not wait it was a dative tense.   It goes like this:


A dativus auctoris walks into a restaurant, and to avoid bumping into the genitive, he accidentally knocks over a vase of passive pluperferct roses.....  I'm drawing a blank on the punchline.  Let me get back to you.

I don't know what any of those are.

I'm not far behind you!  We use them all the time, but we don't know the names.

How 'bout I start another thread so we can talk about them? :)

Thanks!  Otherwise we'd have a lot of googling to do. :)
