Inflections and Conjugations
Inflections, declensions, and conjugations show
changes in a word’s gender, tense, number, person,
and other subtle variations. This dictionary includes
extensive inflections of nouns, verbs, modifiers,
and other words, grouped collectively under the
abbreviation (CONJ). Follow these steps using
the example word suggested or with your own
word on any screen that shows the CONJ soft key.
This includes any dictionary word entry screen,
definition screen, grammar guide, etc.
1. Go to any word entry screen and type a word.
2. Press CONJ.
For example, in English type “best” to view
inflected adjective forms or “go” to view verb
conjugations. In French, type “meilleur“ to view
inflected adjective forms or “aller” to view verb
conjugations.
3. If needed, press or to select the part of
speech and translation you want and press
ENTRER.
Adjective and noun declensions will usually

Press CONJ to view the next conjugated form.
Press FN + or to cycle through the
conjugated forms.
4. Press
or EFFAC when done.
Note: Because of variations in spelling among

headword displayed after looking up a word
may not exactly match the original letters you
entered. This means pressing CONJ for your

headword may yield different results.
