Inanimate Intransitive verbs are verbs with only one role (intransitive) filled by an inanimate subject.

|ᐧᐄᐦᑭᓐ||wiihkin||It is tasty|
|ᐧᐄᐦᑭᓐ ᐱᒥᐦᑳᓐ||wiihkin pimihkaan||The pemmican is tasty|
Some inanimate intransitive verbs do not take nominal subjects. They express seasons, times of day, the weather, and geographical features.
|ᐧᐋᓵᔅᑯᓐ||waasaaskun||It is a clear day|
|ᔫᑎᓐ||yuutin||It is windy|
VII verbs can be found in all the conjunct and the independent orders. They have only third person inflection (proximate and obviative, singular and plural) and no imperative, since imperative requires second person.
