Imperfect Tense Two


Imperfect Tense Two

A pattern used for the Imperfect and the Second Aorist

 παίδευ ο ν  augment then the stem
 παίδευ ε ς then unless it's a contract verb
 παίδευ ε ( ν ) ον ες ε ( ν ) ομεν ετε ον
 παίδευ ο μεν
 παίδευ ε τε
 παίδευ ο ν

A contract Verb like φιλεω would become ἐφιλουν ἐφιλεις ἐφιλει ἐφιλουμεν ἐφιλειτε ἐφιλουν in the Imperfect Tense. Some irregular verbs have σαν instead of ον.

The Middle Imperfect endings are – μην - σο - το - μεθα - σθε - ντο.
