verb stem + 은(consonant), ㄴ(vowel) = past tense; 말한다고 ... said v.s. + 는 = present tense; 말하는다고 ... says v.s. + 을(c), ㄹ(v)=future tense; 말할다고 ... will say
The general rule is 해라체 (plain) form of verb + 고. This applies to both action and descriptive verbs.
Exceptions include (이)라고 for 이다 in present tense, and (으)라고 instead of 아/어라고 for imperative sentences.
Present tense examples of action verb 걷다 (to walk):-
걷는다고 - declarative
걷느냐고 / 걷냐고 - interrogative
걸으라고 - imperative
걷자고 - propositive
yes, why is it not 사랑했다고 like the past tense verbs in other questions? I have seen 갔다고 and 주웠다고
