Resource for finding Greek roots

Post by lankybar » June 16th, 2019, 2:54 pm

Hi,
I am trying to find out which resource lists the roots of Greek words. I was specifically trying to find verb roots. I thought that they would be in BDAG, but I cannot find them listed there. Where would such information be found? Thank you.

There are published dictionaries of varying quality for just this purpose.

A Indo-European linguist, Matthew Scarborough, has an excellent site surveying them and their usefulness/accuracy.

Also: it looks like you need to contact a moderator for a name change--we have a real name policy here at B-Greek.

which resource lists the roots of Greek words
Depending on what you mean by "roots" and "Greek words", you might be looking for an "analytical lexicon," where you can look up a Greek word as you find it written in a sentence, and it will tell you what its lexical form (root) is, and how it has been inflected. e.g. ἠλθον, 1 pers. sing. and 3 pers. pl. aor. 2, ind. ... ἐρχομαι
