Attempts to delineate the history of the various formal classes of Tocharian verbs have not always been as successful as they might have been because they have ignored some of the major functional shifts some Indo-European moods and aspects have undergone. Once full attention is paid to these functional changes, however, it can be seen that Tocharian has handled its Indo-European inheritance very conservatively-with regard both to the mood, aspect, or tense formatives and to the person/number desinences.
