There are two types of verbs (Delang: моҫyлањін (mozjylangin), IPA: /muʃylaŋin/, Kirsh: muSylaNin, CXS: muSylaNin) in Delang; proper verbs and adverbial verbs. Proper verbs are verbs that denotes an action, while adverbial verbs are verbal modifiers that do not denote an action on their own. Proper verbs may also be used as adverbials. Note that there are no auxiliary verbs in Delang.

There are three tenses in Delang, each with its own default aspect; present continuous, perfective past, and future imperfect. The tense of the verb is changed by prefixing the tense particles, ƒłе (fre) /fɹe/, past tense, and гłо (gro) /gɹu:/, future tense, onto the verb stem.

The tense particles may also be used to change the aspect of the verb, creating a plethora of complex verb tenses and aspects. The tense particles may be placed at the beginning of the sentence (also used to indicate politeness in questions), before the object, before the verb or at the end of the sentence. You are neither limited to using only a single tense particle placement, to keep tense agreement between placements or to keep tense agreement with the verb tense. It is however unusual to utilize more than two tense particle placements.
