Greek Grammar 1

Thomas K. Dailey

Fall 2020

Greek Grammar is taught over two semesters. Greek Grammar 1 is intended for those who have had no previous study (or those who need an extensive review) of Koine Greek. The course introduces students to basic Greek morphology, diagnostics needed to recognize the semantic value of inflected forms, and elementary translation of the Greek NT.

Students giving requisite attention to the course requirements and actively participating in the course discussions, translation exercises, and vocabulary drills will emerge from this course with the ability to: (1) write and pronounce NT Greek terms and phrases, (2) identify key morphological features that signal different grammatical functions and semantic value based on an introductory level of Greek vocabulary, an (3) perform elementary translation of the Greek New Testament. 3 credit hours.
