The Qgam verbal structure involves a mandatory auxiliary verb that follows the subject, and a main verb that comes at the end of the clause. The auxiliary agrees with the subject in number, and it is the auxiliary that takes negative marking. The main verb, on the other hand, is not modified in any way.

Subject plurality is marked through the use of a type of umlaut, indicated with the pluralizer which appears after the auxiliary, e.g.: do (SG), 得刁 dea (PL).

There are three broad categories of auxiliary: tense/aspect auxiliaries, modal auxiliaries, and voice auxiliaries. Following is a list of all auxiliaries, with both their singular and plural forms indicated:
