Well, it seem to be easy to read Homer.
I really need some help with homeric verbs. Which way?
Well, there are known two endings for verbs (primary and secondary) in each voices. The problem I meet is, ¿What about pluscuamperfect form? I didn´'t see that endings anyway!?

On the other hand, it's a grat pleasure to read Homer. Really fantastic.

The pluperfect takes secondary endings but Homer almost never uses the pluperfect.
