The indicative mood, or evidential mood, is used for factual statements and positive beliefs. It is the mood of reality. The indicative mood is the most commonly used mood and is found in all languages. Example: Paul is eating an apple or John eats apples. All intentions that a particular language does not categorize as another mood are classified as indicative.
