Publishers Description The Morphology of Biblical Greek explains, in a way second-year Greek students can understand, how Greek words are formed. It shows that Greek word formation follows a limited set of rules. Once these rules are understood, it becomes clear that forms which once seemed to be irregular or an exception actually follow these morphological rules. The Morphology of Biblical Greek has five parts: 1.The rules that determine how Greek words change. 2. The rules of verb formation, from augment to personal ending. 3. Paradigms for every type of noun and adjective form, with all the words that belong in each category and any peculiarities of a given word. 4. All the verbs and principal parts, with verbs that follow the same rules grouped together. 5. An index of all words in the New Testament with their morphological category. The Morphology of Biblical Greek contains the most complete set of paradigms for nouns, verbs, adjectives, and pronouns available for New Testament Greek.

Good book, but no "word formation" section Nov 15, 2009
I got this because I was interested in the word formation parts of Greek. Apart from telling you to see other works, it didn't cover this at all. Having said that, I've found it useful in a number of other ways. The books he recommended for word formation are grammars by: a) Blass, Debrunner and Funk b) Moulton & Howard c) A. T. Robertson d) Herbert Weir Smyth
Incredible work, only one problem Jul 8, 2009
I really enjoy this book. Very helpful in the formation of Greek words and the behavior of the language. In depth coverage of how and why Greek words form the way they do, probably more information than the beginner will need unless you are like me and you're just all about every aspect of the Greek, even the details. Only problem is that it is not available in a hardcover! What a travesty! It is a book that will get used often once one has become acquainted with how to use it, so I can see how the other reviewers talk about theirs falling apart, even though mine has not. I would highly recommend it to anyone starting Greek or is just more curious on the formation of Greek words.

Book arrived in stated condition and prior to est. arrival date. A great aid for study.
Useful work Jan 26, 2008
Excellent work! It explains everything concerning the biblical Greek grammar in detail. Anyway is not for the beginner who could get lost, especially in the introductory chapters regarding phonology. Always I thought that the phonetics should be kept at minimum. Once progress is made, the phonology can be inserted in small bits.
However, the book is for the intermediate learner. The beginner should stick to Mounce's BBG's grammar explanations. But for a in depth study of biblical Greek, The Morphology of Biblical Greek is essential.
The only downside of the book is its binding... A pity for a such a great work!
Falling apart Oct 28, 2007
Be forewarned...as two other reviewers have said, this is a cheap paperback with glue-injected binding...mine @ the first reading has pages dopping out like falling leaves...What ever you do DON'T glue the pages as the glued page now pulls loose the next page...I've written Zondervan about their cheaply produced books...but apparently they don't care as they never responed...A real SHAME for a great work...And on works that have been around for a while like Kubo's Reader's Lexicon get an older version where the binding is sewn, not glue-injected...
