Introduction to Ancient Greek First Aorist Active Imperative Verbs

Imperatives in Ancient Greek (and other languages) are commands issued to someone else.

The "aorist tense" of First Aorist Active Imperatives refers not to time but to the aspect of the orders. In short, First Aorist Active Imperatives are commands that are expected to be followed a single time.

In Ancient Greek, imperatives exist only for 2nd and 3rd person singular and plurals (ie: You {singular}, He / She / It, You {plural} and They). They do not exist for 1st person singular or 1st person plural (ie: I and We).

Every present active imperative in Ancient Greek is composed of a verb stem, a sigma (σ), and one of the following endings: -ον, -ατω, -ατε or -αντων.

This test does not include accent marks, but does include α-, ε-, and o- contract verbs.
