Complete paradigms for all GNT verbs?

Post by Mitch Tulloch » February 25th, 2018, 12:45 pm

I was wondering, has anyone developed and made available PDFs that show complete paradigms for all (more or less) verbs in the Greek New Testament? e.g. one PDF for λυω showing all forms for all tenses, moods, voices, number etc. and another for ειμι and another for etc etc etc. Is there any freely downloadable resource like this?

Thanks! --Mitch

Rod Decker(✝) has a complete set of overheads for Mounce that contains what you are looking for:

and Helma Dik at the U of Chicago has a marvelous page with tons of great stuff:

Wigram's Analytical Greek Lexicon is most useful, especially the Tables (Section 12 on the Verb Substantive), the Lexicon proper lists all the words in the GNT, thus a desired verb is defined to be of such and such form and conjugation.

You will find that Mounce and most "NT" books do not cover all the verbs. They will hang you out to dry.

Instead, they list and re-group all of the forms that are attested in the NT, but they leave blank the many many unattested and irregular forms.

For someone who wants to internalize the language (and to do that one must use the language for communication), they will need a book like "Greek Morphology, Verbs and Nouns for Koine Greek" at biblicallanguagecenter.com. It has an English to Greek index and lists some common verbs that are not in the NT, "accidentally," as well as showing forms for verbs that are needed to fill out a paradigm, especially the many, common, irregular paradigms.

My beginning Greek text, Crosby & Schaeffer, had a list of the 50 or 60 most common irregular verbs and their principal parts, which the "mean" professor (actually one of my favorite professors) made us memorize. Down the years I have been very glad he did so.

Highly recommended. Between this book and Kalos Beautiful Greek Software, I don't use anything else these days. Unfortunately, I cannot find Kalos just now and so can't give a link.

Looks like it is down - there's an empty Wordpress site at http://www.kalos-software.com.
