Pluperfect v. Perfect Tenses

Last lesson, I discussed how to form the perfect tense in the passive voice, which required the present conjugation of sinn (to be), the past participle of ginn (which, conveniently, is ginn), and the past participle of the passive verb. For reference:

froen - to ask

As in the active voice, the pluperfect passive conjugates much like the the perfect passive, but instead of the present conjugation of sinn, it uses the imperfect conjugation of sinn. For example:

I should point out again that the main verb in the perfect and pluperfect passives is ginn, meaning that the auxiliary verb will always be sinn.
