Look at the following sentence:

I will have gone

As you see, this structure is similar to what we have in present perfect tense, but an additional auxiliary verb ‘will’ is added in between.

The simple future of the verb ‘to have’ (will have) + the past participle of the main verb ‘go’ (gone)

In Tulu, we use the following structure for the Future Perfect Tense:

Past Adverbial Participles (Perfect) + simple future (Simple Present) tense of ‘uppuni/ippuni’

As I said earlier, in Tulu, Simple Present Tense also used to talk about actions that will happen certainly in the future.

So let us quickly review the conjugations of the verb ‘uppuni/ippuni’ in simple present/future tense

yAn uppuvae – I am / I will be

Aye/imbe uppuve – He is / He will be

Ir/nikulu  uppuvar – You are / You will be
akulu/mokulu/Ar/mEr uppuver – They are / They will be
undekulu/aikulu uppuva – They are / They will be

Past Adverbial Participles (Perfect) of the verb ‘pO’ is ‘pOdu’
