Waterbien is the main and official language of the Waterbe Empire, and also the most commonly used one.
The Waterbe have many tenses, which are signified by the suffix of the action (an action being a noun that denotes an event, such as war). For example, the root event abbant (meaning war) becomes abbantis when referring to the past.
Whilst it may seem some normal nouns obey the tense laws, this has no meaning as nouns do not have tense applied with them, instead the tense of the noun is implied by the action.
There are three forms of tense: simple, conditional and progressive. Simple means that the timeframe is true, conditional means that the timeframe may be true and progressive means it is true across the present as well (and so there is no progressive present).
