On page 151, Mastronarde says:

φημι... has enclitic forms in the present active indicative (except 2nd sing. φης).

Reading A Greek Boy At Home

I have been reading Rouse's "A Greek Boy At Home" for quite a while now, and as much as I try to get past the first lessons quickly, I can't seem to do it. The main problem is with vocabulary, which cannot be deduced (for the most part) from the context, and the accompanying glossary apparently omits several key words. It can get very, very frustrating, but I refuse to let this book go. To ...
