      Description

      The output from the Catalan verb conjugator is not formatted at all, making it very hard to read and use.

        This is the formatting suggested by David last year.

        I have a couple of comments.
        1. I know the simple past tense fits top left in chronological sequence but, as David notes, it is only used in literary forms and some dialects and therefore it seems a bit odd to me to have it as the first and most prominent conjugation.
        2. I would probably change the column headings to past, present and future as I think yesterday, today and tomorrow may confuse some users.
        3. I would change the row heading 'already made' to 'already done' and 'under condition' to 'conditional'.

        Otherwise, I think they're great and particularly like the examples at the bottom of each one which we must try and write into the Perl program.

        Linda,

        1. A mi tampoc m'agrada però Unamuno deia que als catalans ens perd l'estètica.

        2. Hi vaig posar yesterday, today, tomorrow perquè no es repetís past, present, future damunt de past tense, present tense, future tense. A més, he intentat que segons les condicions (while, if, under condition) i el moment (yesterday, today, tomorrow) es pugui trobar la forma més adequada de conjugació. Sé que és un problema per als qui no teniu conjugacions tipus llatí.

        3. Totalment d'acord. També deus saber els problemes que tenim entre "to make" i "to do"...

        M'acabo d'adonar. Pots canviar l'exemple "si et passàs..." per "passés"? Com a conjugació normalitzada no és un bon exemple. Potser per a un conjugador de mallorquí sí
