Handbook of Greek Verbs

Handbook of Greek Verbs

I do not know whether this resource has ever been mentioned in B-greek. It could be useful for some people who listen in on this list.

Complete Handbook of Greek Verbs. By N. Marione and F. Guala. Cambridrge, MA:Schoenhof's Foreigrn Books, Inc.; Milano: Casa Editrice Principato, 1961. ISBN 0-87774-001-1. 352 pp, octavo. Paper. [I did not check to see if it is still in print.]

This presents the parsing of over 13,000 Greek verb forms (tense, mood, voice, person, number) and gives the word under which it is defined in a lexicon. It would be very useful for people reading non- NT texts, whether classical, Hellenistic, or Roman period in time of origin. It begins with about 14 pages of tables of verb forms. While it was prepared by Italian scholars, instructions in this edition, printed in Canada in 1988, are in English.

Is this the book that is called "Tutti Frutti"? (I think it had a title like Tutti Verbi Graeci)

The original, in fact, is Verbi Greci. Quite handy, if you know just a touch of Italian.

You can also download Kalos:


It has a large dictionary, and it can do morphological analysis and produce syntax charts.

I've got the book. Perseus' parsing utility called 'the hopper' supercedes it. http://www.perseus.tufts.edu/hopper/morph?. Kalos will give a full conjugation of verbs and full forms for any words (all cases and numbers). Once in a while Kalos gets it wrong; but so does Perseus for some words. (Perseus usually always has the forms declined correctly, it's just that sometimes it does not offer a lemma. When you go to the University of Chicago's implementation (http://perseus.uchicago.edu/Reference/LSJ.html), you can usually find what is missing or not linked correctly in Perseus.Tufts LSJ lexicon.
