This volume is indeed "complete" and is highly useful Dec 11, 2006
Warren Trenchard's book is a fantastic resource for building vocabulary as well as for reference and review. This revised edition contains many updates that make it even more 'user-friendly' and comes with a hardcover binding that will make it hold up to the repeated use it will get.
The first section of the book lists words by their cognate group and is obviously the section to use in order to rapidly build a working vocabulary. Trenchard also lists the frequency of occurence of each word in this section, so students can decide which words are most important to memorize at first (however, with the cognate approach, it's easier to memorize many words that occur infrequently as well). Following this section is another section that lists words only by their frequency, from most frequent to least frequent.
The third major section provides the principal parts of all the verbs in the GNT. It is best used for review or for reference on those occasions when your mind just goes blank. If you are not careful, however, you will come to rely on this section as a crutch and will likely never memorize the principal parts of all verbs. Again, when used as intended, this section is valuable, but if you let it become a crutch, then it will actually become an impediment to learning Greek verbs.
Trenchard also provides a list of all proper nouns, which (for reasons I've never yet been able to figure out) tend to be omitted from a great many lexicons. He also has a catch-all section of 'Other Lists' that provides number words, Aramaic words, Hebrew words, and a slew of other useful items.
This is the definitive book for students who are building their NT Greek vocabulary. If you find this volume to be a valuable tool, then check out Trenchard's "A Concise Dictionary of New Testament Greek" as well (see my review of that book for more information).
wish I had this years ago Jul 29, 2006
This is the best of several long overdue improvements on Metzger's old vocabulary guide. This book lists EVERY NT word by frequency and all words with at least one cognate in a separate list. It also has a list of principal parts of EVERY verb, so it is the most complete of any guide. But beyond this, it is worth the price in that the definitions simply list every possible meaning of each word, which makes it much more user-friendly than a dictionary such as BDAG. I use this book far more often than any other Greek resource I own. After a grammar and a Greek text, this is definitley the third book I would purchase.
Great book!!! Oct 12, 2000
Warren Trenchard's book is an awesome resource for anybody doing serious greek study. Warren gives words in listings for both frequency and cognate groups. While the frequency list is the obvious choice for order of memorization, the cognate section has been the real key to me for memory retention. It transforms the learning from sheer memorization to the fluent understanding of concepts. Often times, seeing the commen root has instantely made difficult words easy. I am on a eight year plan to learn all the words in the Greek New Testament and Warren's book is my main source of study.
Top Vocabulary Resource for the New Testament Feb 10, 2000
Trenchard's book is without doubt the most thorough and helpful work available for building the Greek vocabulary necessary to read the New Testament in the original language. While several other good books have been written for this purpose, none is as complete as this one. With an exaustive list of the New Testament Greek vocabulary organized by word families and by frequency of usage, plus several other helpful lists, this book lends itself well to the task of enlarging the reader's vocabulary.
I have used this book for second semester classes in Biblical Greek and as a guide for review in second year Greek. It has worked well in both contexts.
