It is not part of the indirect statement, hence why it wasn't mentioned in Ignis Umbra's post.

That's a bit of a weak example considering the English noun along with all the forms you mentioned comes from Latin.Aside from the comparative/superlative adverbs, what are all the other ways in which morphological derivation could be used in Latin?
For example, let's use the word "glory", a noun.
Yeah, it was the 1st thing that came to mind. It was just meant to try & get my idea across.That's a bit of a weak example
So Latin does have it. Are there regularized affixes to remember whenever I want to convert a word's part of speech on the fly or are there some words with affixes that convert differently?considering the English noun along with all the forms you mentioned comes from Latin.
Yes. Perfect can also be 'I was loved'.What would these be for passive conjugations? Are they as follows?:
Present - I am loved / I am being loved
Imperfect - I was being loved
Future - I will be loved
Perfect - I have been loved
Pluperfect - I had been loved
Future Perfect - I will have been loved
That's how the Latin language developed.Also, for the passive completed aspects, you'd need to use the participle amatus + the corresponding conjugation of sum. Why is it like that instead of just having more conjugations of amo itself?
Can the completed aspects of sum ever be used by itself or is it only ever used as a part of other passive completed verbs?
By "completed aspects", I'm referring to the completed conjugations of the verb such as perfect, pluperfect, & future perfect tenses (opposed to the continuous aspects of it such as present, imperfect, & future tenses).I'm not sure what you mean. Can you give me an example?
Perfect - ???
Pluperfect - I had been?
Future Perfect - I will have been?
The last 2 descriptions I've typed sound like the passive voice, but sum doesn't have passive versions. What would the last 3 be?
