    In Persian a verb in the subjunctive has a particular form and—once you have learned the construction—it is easy to recognize. The basic features for the subjunctive are as follows: With the exception of the jussive and optative moods, in Persian, a verb in the subjunctive form is always a complement to a main verb in the sentence or clause. In Persian, compound verbs are constructed of a verb and a non-verbal element, such as a noun, verbal noun, compound noun, adjective, past stem, and preposition. Normally in this case the non-verbal element goes through a semantic mutation.
