006 Cambridge Books Online © Cambridge University Press, 2013 22 Teachers’ Notes to Reading Greek It is probably best to treat the middle endings as something separate. If παύω and παύομαι are both met, there are likely to be questions about the distinctions between them and these questions are not answered in the Course until Section 5. If an interim explanation is required, it is possible to call the middle ‘a sort of reflexive’ – acting on yourself or in your own interests. It is, however, essential to stress that many verbs have a middle form only, cf.

Deponent verbs in Latin for those who know that language. The contracted forms of middle verbs should cause no problems if the rules for contraction have been assimilated. If time is short, it is possible to pass over the -όω contractions; only a handful of verbs are common, and they seldom present difficulties of recognition. Future prose-writers will of course need the rules. As for first-declension nouns, the full rules for the occurrence of -α- or -η- will again only be needed by those who wish to do a substantial amount of English – Greek translation.

G. λιμήν, λιμέν-. οὗτος needs a separate table. The endings are much the same as in the definite article. A good stem mnemonic is οὑτ- τουτ-, αὑτ- ταυτ-. Those doing English– Greek will need to be told that οὗτος ὁ is normal Greek. Two omissions should be added here: ὅδε, ὁδί (though these are glossed in the Vocabulary at the back of GE). μέγας, πολύς are also dealt with here. If learnt in the form μέγας (μεγάλ-), πολύς (πολλ-), all parts are easily recognizable. ) CD The whole of Section 3 is recorded on CD 1, tracks 24–8.
