As the student can see, the future simply adds s to the stem of the verb, and the rest remains the same.
There are, unfortunately, exceptions to this simple rule which MUST be learned. They are as follows:
When a stem ends in-
l, m, n, or r, the s is dropped and the w is accented. I.e., mensw becomes menw.
k, g, or x before s becomes c; thus a0gw becomes a0cw.
p, b, or f become y. I.e, blepw becomes bleyw.
t, d, or q simply drop out. Thus peiqw becomes peisw.
There are other peculiarities which can best be learned in practice.
ASSIGNMENT: Memorize the rules above.
