Sphinx is a site in progress. If something doesn't work or is incorrect, please let the creator know!

Update 2014-10-22: Added German version, with invaluable help from Henry Burow at the Kirchliche Hochschule Wuppertal/Bethel.

Update 2012-11-29: Corrected paradigm errors in ἀγγέλλω, ἕλκω, λέγω, ὁράω, παιδεύω, and φέρω. Many thanks to those who found them.

Update 2012-08-02: Back online after switching servers. Email reports of incorrect paradigms (some of them quite old) will be attended to.

At present the drill covers a handful of regular Greek verbs and the "top 101 irregular verbs" from James Morwood's Oxford Grammar of Classical Greek; plus a less extensive Latin vocabulary. Planned updates include adding alternative forms; adding participles other than the nominative singular; adding noun and adjective declensions.

Q: How are the paradigms organized?

A: By verb endings. That is, "deponent" or "middle" verbs like αἰσθάνομαι will list all forms under the middle voice, even though their meaning is generally translated as active; the verb βούλομαι lists all forms under the middle voice except the passive aorist and future forms derived from the sixth principal part ἐβουλήθην; a verb such as γελάω, with future form γελάσομαι, will list middle and passive future forms rather than active.

Q: Why isn't vowel length marked?

A: The drill is meant as practice for reading texts which generally don't indicate vowel length. In the future the site may be set up to show vowel length in the paradigms only.
