|You are sleeping, you are asleep.
The Independent Indicative Present (#01) is used alone for things happening now, in the present tense, with a neutral modality.
The forms of conjugation #01 can combine with many preverbs, for example to indicate the future, the conditional, or to indicate modality (like want):
|Conditional + want
|Shash tshipa ui nipan.
|You will sleep.
|You should already be asleep.
The personal prefix is always attached before the preverb. More than one preverb can be combined, for example the volitional preverb ui with the future -ka:
|Future + want
|Nika ui nipan.
|I want to sleep.
|I will try to sleep.
Or the preverb tshi can with the future -ka:
|Future + can
|Tshika tshi uapamau a?
|Will you be able to see her/him?

The third person of this form is the one used for the Innu Dictionary entries, for example: nipau s/he sleeps.
