OK, we now have some Kebreni grammatical terms (see the Kebreni grammar). They are mostly loan-translations of the Cadhinor/Verdurian forms, thus:
To name verb forms, conjugate nizu, as suggested by Philip.
To refer to a class of verb forms, use the characteristic vowel or affix plus nezi 'word(s)': a-nezi, antibenefactive forms in general; e-nezi, volitional forms; ri-nezi, polite forms; te-nezi, subordinate forms, etc. (See nezi in the lexicon.)
No word is needed for 'adverb', since subordinating forms are used for those.
