==Conjugation Classes==
Verbs can be grouped into several classes based on their pattern of conjugation. The table above lists some Bininj Kunwok verbs and the conjugation class that the verb belongs to. Here is a summary of the groups according to their non-past endings
* '''Conjugation Group 1:''' This group ends in ''-me''
* '''Conjugation Group 2:''' This group ends in ''-ke'', ''-ye'' or ''-we(n)''
* '''Conjugation Group 9:''' This group ends in ''-re''
* '''Conjugation Group 10:''' This group ends in ''-rren''
* '''Conjugation Group 11:''' This group ends in ''-men''. Note that there is a vowel change in the past perfective. These verbs are generally derived from [[Adjectives]].
