Introduction to Ancient Greek Imperfect Active Indicative Verbs
Ancient Greek imperfect tense, active voice, indicative mood verbs describe (or indicate!) actions that were performed in the past by the subject of the sentence. The action that occurred must have been an ongoing process and not a discrete event.
Imperfect active indicative verbs in Ancient Greek are composed of a verb stem beginning with an ε- augment and ending with the following: -ον, -ες, -ε(ν), -ομεν, -ετε or -ον.
(Note that the ending for First Person Singular (-ον) is the same as Third Person Plural (-ον). While this test will ask for both of these answers, in practice the single actual answer for such cases will only be discernable from the context of the sentence.)
Of course, the augments and verb-endings will be modified according to the Ancient Greek contraction rules; click the yellow grammar review table button for further details.
This test includes α-, ε-, and o- contract verbs. However, it does not include diacritical accentation.
