Reported imperfective

The reported imperfective is formed by adding to the verb stem the suffix -AR/-R, (that which used to be the present-future participle), followed by the reportative copula emish, plus the pronominal type of personal suffixes.

With the verb kelmoq, 'to come':

kelar emishmanApparently I come / will come / used to come
kelar emishsanApparently you come / will come / used to come
kelar emishApparently he/she/it come / will come / used to come
kelar emishmizApparently we come / will come / used to come
kelar emishsizApparently you come / will come / used to come
kelar emishlar / emishApparently they come / will come / used to come

In spoken Uzbek, an abbreviated form is used, where the first vowel e- of emish is dropped, the suffix being reduced to -MISH and written together with the suffix -AR.

kelarmishmanApparently I come / will come / used to come
kelarmishsanApparently you come / will come / used to come

kelarmishmizApparently we come / will come / used to come
kelarmishsizApparently you come / will come / used to comeused to come
kelarmishlar / kelarmishApparently they come / will come / used to come
