Greek Paradigm Handbook: Reference Guide and Memorization Tool Reviews
I bought this volume to supplement my study materials for a tutorial in Attic Greek. It provides detailed morphologies/paradigms for all the regular word forms in a handy study guide, and does the same for a significant number of irregular forms. My only problem is that it provides examples of the paradigms for words, but does not provide the translations for those words. (This, of course, may have been intentional, as it makes the pradigm tables suitable for distribution to speakers of any language.)
This book was a find! The authors are all graduates of St. John's College, which may be the only remaining liberal arts school that still requires all students to take two years of Greek.
I have found the Greek Paradigm Handbook very useful. When I've needed to review the paradigms, it has been a handy reference. When I am trapped somewhere (like proctoring), I can review without my attention wandering too far from the external world.
This book has proven invaluable this past semester. As a college student taking an introduction course to the Ancient Greek language, the semester has been chock-full of conjugations and declensions that must be memorized in order to properly grasp the language. While our textbook is very easy-to-understand and well organized, this small pocket-sized memorization tool has allowed me to carry my charts around in my purse and thus whip them out and study them at any spare moment.
This is a great book for the beginning or advance Greek student. The charts are easy to read and follow a logical and traditional pattern. It is small enough that it won't take up as much space as your Athenaze or Groton textbooks, but provide the same amount of information as their morphology appendix. It is neater than photo coping out your charts from a text book. The one draw back is that the cover is paperback, if you aren't careful you can bend the cover (but storing the handbook in a plastic bag reduces the chances of that.
The copy I received had no pages 109-176. Suggest you check the copy you receive.
This small book is easy, useful, and convenient. You can find all ancient Greek paradigms in this book. If you know a bit of ancient Greek, you must have this book. This book will enhance your Greek skills.
Where was I without this book? Suffering slightly more than I am now.
