Mesopotamia from the third millennium BC until its gradual replacement by
Akkadian-influenced Old Aramaic among Mesopotamians by the 8th century BC.

precative, and vetitive and three infinite forms (infinitive, participle and verbal adjective).
Conjugate an Akkadian Verb
Akkadian verbs have 13 separate derived stems formed on each root. Verbix conjugates the verbs in
four of these:
- The basic, underived, stem is the G-stem (from the German Grundstamm, meaning "basic stem").
- Causative or intensive forms are formed with the doubled D-stem, and it gets its name
from the doubled-middle radical that is characteristic of this form.
- The Š-stem is formed by adding a prefix š-, and these forms are mostly causatives.
- The passive forms of the verb are in the N-stem, formed by adding a n- prefix.
