Sample text

Lord, grant me a good mind so that I will learn my letters and outshine my peers. —Eustratius 19 20 Introduction Reading Signs This is a typical Greek street sign. ΟΔΟΣ (ὁδός in classical Greek) means road or way. In English we have many derivatives, for example, odometer, exodus, method, period, cathode, anode, synod, episode, parodos (side entrance), electrode. In Greece you will see others, such as ΕΙΣΟΔΟΣ (entrance), ΑΝΟΔΟΣ (ascent). In Greek cities, towns, and villages, an open central square is called a Plateia, which comes from πλατεῖα ὁδός (wide way).

The Greek verb has many forms to express these properties. In English too we can express them all, not through changes in the form of the verb, but through auxiliary verbs and compound tenses. The tense in Greek tells us two things: time and aspect. Time tells us whether the action or state expressed by the verb is past, present, or future. Aspect tells us the relationship of the action or state to the passage of time: is it going on, momentary, or complete? Greek has seven tenses of the indicative mood: present, imperfect, future, aorist, perfect, pluperfect, and future perfect, which we can chart according to their aspect and time: Time Aspect Present Past Durative Momentary Completed Present Imperfect Aorist Pluperfect Perfect Future Future Future Perfect Voice tells us the relationship of the subject to the action, whether the subject acts or is acted upon.
