Can anyone with more HV knowledge tell me this? Would "Do (the) girls praise (boys)?" use the same construction (present indicative) or something else (aorist maybe?), since it's no longer focused on something happening right now, but instead is talking about a habit/routine or a general truth? I've been pretty curious about this for a bit but haven't figured it out yet. Thanks!
