Uyghur verbs agree with their subjects in person and number. Verbs have the following grammatical categories:

  • two numbers: singular and plural;
  • three persons: 1st, 2, 3rd;
  • five moods: indicativedubitativeimperativeconditionalsubjunctive;
  • two voices: active and passive with different forms for passive transitive and passive intransitive verbs;
  • three tenses: present, past, future;
  • evidentiality that is required at all times and which indicates whether evidence exists for a given statement. Uyghur contrasts direct information (reported directly) and indirect information (reported indirectly).
  • politeness (respect)
  • there are fairly complex rules for interrogative and negative forms
