These words include twelve tenses—different times the action is happening.  They include ten people doing the action as well as people doing the action to others. The words are positive or negative as well.  More than 150 verb roots are included as well as nouns, people who are relatives, words for weather, and more.  As more words are added, you will receive these at no additional cost.
