A good dictionary, I should think.

Marione's is the first stop - then on to the dictionary.

I think that All the Greek Verbs lists the verbs in declined form. So, for example, if you run across the form[face=SPIonic] h)=lqon [/face] and didn't know what it was, you could look it up there and it would refer you to [face=SPIonic] e)/rxomai [/face]. But if you look up [face=SPIonic] e)/rxomai [/face] it will not list the principle parts. (If I am mistaken, please correct me.)

The little Liddell and Scott Lexicon lists the principle parts of verbs, along with definitions. The little one is probably all you need, unless you are a heavy duty scholar (or you just like really big books). :)

I'm curious about that book by Marione. What's in it?
