Finite verbs in this description consist of verbs that occur last in the predicate of the main clause. Non-finite verbs are those that occur as the non-final verb in the predicate of the main clause and those that occur in subordinate clause predicates. 12 Tense/aspect is marked on both finite and non-finite verbs. Negation is marked in a variety of ways on finite and non-finite verbs; finite verbs take a negative suffix, but non-finite verbs have suffixes that encode negation together with other clausal relations.
