Inflections indicates tense (and sometimes person and number) and the mood of a verb.
Change in the form of the word to show variation of meaning (as with inflections of number, comparison, and tense), or to show the relation of a word to another word (as with the inflections of case and person).
The inflection of substantives is called declension, that of adjectives and adverbs comparison, and that of verbs conjugation.
The various forms that a word receives in inflection are its inflectional forms e.g.:
love, loved, and loving are inflectional forms of the verb to love
man, man's, men, men's, are the inflectional forms of the noun man.
