Textkit Tutorial - Notes on the Aorist Morphology

Postby Jeff Tirey » Wed Sep 03, 2003 12:09 am

This thread was created to discuss the Textkit Tutorial<br />Notes on the Aorist Morphology by William Annis<br /><br />Introduction:<br />Traditional grammars of classical Greek enumerate two forms of the aorist. For the beginner this terminology is extremely misleading: the second aorist contains two distinct conjugations. This article covers the formation of all types of aorist, with special attention on the athematic second aorist conjugation which few verbs take, but several of them happen to be common.<br /><br />The complete article can be found here:<br />http://www.textkit.com/tutorials/20030901-aorist-page1.php?aid=2&tid=2<br /><br />

There's a special section for what the author calls "root aorists."<br /><br />

<br /><br />Yes. It always happens! I think everything is perfect, make one last quick edit for sense, and introduce 3 horrible errors into a single paragraph. Jeff should already have my fixes.<br /><br />--<br />wm
