I'm still having trouble. I just need to know besides from context, when a perfect is deponent. I know the lexical form is deponent if it is listed as middle/passive, and that a deponent in the present may not be deponent in the future or aorist, etc... So how do I tell if a perfect is deponent? I hope this makes sense. This is a beginner question, and I admit I'm not yet through with a first year textbook.
