Grammar Review


Guide to Greek Grammar


Professor Jon Weatherly created this collection of charts and outlines to assist students in reviewing the contents of the Beginning and Intermediate Greek courses at CCU. The guide has been revised and expanded by Professor James Smith. These charts and outlines can greatly assist the first-year student in reviewing key components of the language throughout the first year of study, as well as assist student in preparing for final exams in both semesters of first year Greek.


Summary of Basics of Biblical Greek


William Mounce, author of Basics of Biblical Greek, has reduced his textbook to a 35 page summary. This .pdf file is a helpful review resource for first year students preparing for final exams. For information about the textbook itself, see the Print Resources page on the Digital Greek web site.


Morphology


Compendium of Greek Phonology


This handout, written by Carl Conrad, a retired Greek professor at Washington University (Saint Louis), explains various aspects of Greek inflection. It is particularly designed to help students understand the inflection of apparently irregular paradigms.


Accents


Accenting Verbs and Nouns: A Supplement to Appendix 1 in Learn to Read New Testament Greek


This handout, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, provides supplementary information on accenting nouns and verbs. The handout should be read in conjunction with the appendix on accenting in David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek.


Verbs


Active, Middle and Passive: Understanding Ancient Greek Voice


This document, written by Carl Conrad, a retired Greek professor at Washington University (Saint Louis), explains the concept of voice in English and Greek, noting similarities and differences. Although the document is specifically geared to the study of Classical Greek, not Biblical Greek, the information is still useful for those studying the Greek New Testament.


Irregular Verbs


This document, written by Carl Conrad, a retired Greek professor at Washington University (Saint Louis), lists several irregular verbs used in the New Testament and provides some explanation to explain some of the so-called irregularities in these particular verb forms.


Principal Parts of -mi Verbs


This handout, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, provides for the principal parts encountered in the Greek New Testament of -mi verbs. The chart can be used to supplement the information on -mi verbs provided in Chapter 25 of David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek.


Principal Parts of the Model Verb


This handout, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, provides the six principal parts of the Greek model verb luo, along with a listing of all categories of tense stems that are built on each of the principal parts.


A Supplement to the Principal Parts Chart (Appendix 9) in Learn to Read New Testament Greek


This handout, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, provides the principal parts for all verbs introduced in Chapters 1-15 but not included in the chart of principal parts in Appendix 9 of David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek.


Nouns


Third Declension Nouns


This handout, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, lists all the inflected forms of all third declension nouns introduced in Chapter 17 of David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek.


What’s the Subject?


This handout, created by Rod Decker, a Greek professor at Baptist Bible Seminary, explains to first year Greek students how to determine the difference between the subject and the predicate nominative in a linking verb sentence.


Exercises


Additional Exercises: Part One


Additional Exercises: Part Two


These two handouts, created by Prof. Scott Lloyd, provide basic, made-up Greek sentences that beginning Greek students can translate for additional practice. Note: both sets of exercises assume a knowledge of Chapters 1-10 of David Alan Black’s Learn to Read New Testament Greek.
