P.A. 22e

Chairete philoi!

As you will notice especially by my post count, this is my first post here. I figured it would be the right thing to do to sign up at the forum since I've been lurking around for a few days already, and now a reason popped up:

I have been looking now in the four Greek grammars I have accessible for an explanation on how to apply augment to verbs beginning with an ...
