Perhaps someone can help me with this. 

Is there a way to find the complete forms of all verbs used in the Greek NT? It would be great if I could look up a word, such as "eimi" and see all the forms, including all the participle forms.

Thanks in advance

Hi Mortensen,

the strict answer is no. That is, you can't find the "complete" forms of all the verbs. That is because some of them do not have all the forms in the new testament.


What you can do though is show all the NT forms of the verb. To do this is quite simple:


Open a GNT and type in the search box [VERB]


This will find all the verbs in the Greek NT.


Then select Analysis - and the item in the analysis drop down called "Word Count Totals => Analysis"

select OK and you will get a list of all the verbs in the New Testament

Click in the Analysis pane that just opened so that the pane bar at the top goes blue (i.e. make it active)


Then press CMD-T and you will get the "Set Analysis Display" sheet drop down.



drag the "INFLECT" item into the first column

so you will see this:

Then when you press OK, you will get a list of all the verbs sorted by lemma, with all the forms listed underneath the lemma

As you can see - there are a lot of forms for the verb ειμι!

If you want to pick up a particular verb, just change your search to (for example) ειμι@[VERB] (strictly the @VERB here is redundant) and you will see just the ειμι forms.


Hope that helps.

Some grammars, such as Mounce Greek 3, have examples of verb paradigms, but not of course the full chart of every verb.

Mortensen, some Accordance users are lucky enough to have gotten Mounce's Morphology of Biblical Greek while it was available, but it is "to be re-released soon," according to its Accordance product page. (Which notes of the book: "It contains the most complete set of paradigms available for New Testament Greek.")
