Compendium of 1850 Modern Greek Verbs
Compendium of 1850 Modern Greek Verbs.
Set out in tabular form with a guide to the function and formation of tenses and moods.
Written for the English speaking learner of Modern Greek.
Divided into three parts -
1. The three main types of verbs in all tenses, mood and imperative forms.
2. Tables of Greek verbs in English alphabetical order.
3. Page index of verbs in Greek alphabetical order.
This compendium is a collection of Greek verbs used in spoken or written modern Greek.
It is intended as a reference aid for establishing the various formations of tenses, moods and voices and to assist in the correct forms when speaking or translating from one language to the other.
Compound and idiomatic verbs were not chosen for inclusion in the list of verbs but rather single word verbs with a corresponding single word translation - even though many verbs have more than one commonly used meaning depending on context. This is not something covered here but by presenting the various simple and compound tenses this Compendium book provides a guide to situating events in time for clear and precise communication.
The first part of the book contains tables of verbs conjugated in all tenses both in the Active and Passive voices. These tables show examples which cover the conjugation pattern for each listed verb.
There are also pages where the meaning of each tense and the rules for forming the relevant endings are set out. The list of verbs should make it easier to understand and remember the variety of forms.
Other forms of speech with various verb constructions are also included, e.g. conditional and impersonal.
The images on this web page include the front cover and two sample pages from the main section of the book.
