This mode is used when the sub-phrase talks of things that have not really occurred, but could or might happen.
One could call these hypothetical or conditional sub-clauses.
The Subjunctive Conjunct Mode adds the modal ending (-e) to regular conjunct endings but without initial change.
... néenge if she sees it ... kataatánge if he wants it ... kataatamáane if I want it Mah ndayumóowŭneen amóxool mah kataatamoowéengwe. We won't get the boat if we don't want it. (kataatam)-(oo)-(w)-(eengw)-(e) Ktáyumun uch ha katá-ch-neemáne? If you see it will you get it? Mah aa ktalunumóowun ahtawáane You should not touch it if I put it down. alúnum vti1b touch s.t. áhtoow vti2 put s.t. down

Lunúnge-uch. Let him do it. Néenge-uch. Let him see it. Naatúnge-uch. Let him get it. Peetáakwe-uch. Let him bring it. Miichíite-uch. Let him eat it. Munéete-uch. Let him drink it.
