Sure, there's one example up a few posts, but let's see if I can make a few more for you.
".pant raggedly as I'm climbing the ladder. "Dang, I'm so out of shape." I .mutter to myself."
".scream in pain as I'm penetrated by shrapnel."
".stretch my arms out as i'm leaving the rooftop, aiming for a far off handhold to catch myself."
.laugh at Bob because i am able to.
and asking if it is possible for "i am" to automatically show to others as "Jane laughs at Bob because she is able to." instead of "...because she am able to."
What I didn't know is you could do ".laugh at Bob because i .am able to." and it automatically changes it to: Jane laughs at Bob because she is able to! :O
There's only a few basic rules for conjugating English verbs in present tense:
1. Irregular verbs (there are four).
2. Modal verbs (there are nine that folks could reasonably and frequently .pose).
3. -es / -ies verbs (two rules).
4. Contractions (there are four that are relevant).
"...the list of irregular present tense verbs is very short. Excepting modal verbs like "shall", "will", and "can" that do not inflect at all in the present tense, there are only four (only two if pronunciation is ignored):
be: I am, thou art, you are, he is, we are, they are.
do (and compounds such as "undo" and "redo"): I do, you do, he does, we do, they do where "does" is pronounced /ˈdʌz/ in contrast to /ˈduː/, the pronunciation of the infinitive and the other present tense forms.
have: I have, you have, he has, we have, they have.
say (and compounds such as "gainsay" and "naysay"): I say, you say, he says, we say, they say where "says" has the standard pronunciation /sɛz/ (in contrast to the /seɪ/ used for the infinitive and other present tense forms)."
"]The following verbs have all of the above properties, and can be classed as the principal modal verbs of English. They are listed here in present–preterite pairs where applicable:
- can and could
- may and might
- shall and should
- will and would
- must (no preterite"
- Verbs ending in -o, -sh, -ch, -tch, -x, -z, or -ss get -es added
- Verbs with a consonant +y, you change the -y to -ies
List of English contractions. Only a handful of them are first person present tense verbs, and even fewer get a change in 3rd person. Quite a number of them are really amazing.
- ain't / amn't -> isn't
- don't -> doesn't
- haven't -> hasn't
- I'm / I've -> he's / she's

.scream in pain as a piece of shrapnel penetrates me.
.whistle cheerfully as I .wash the dishes.

.watch -> .eye / .look / .glare
I can keep offering alternatives all day-- but that's all I can do at this point :)
