Future Tense, Active Voice, Indicative Mood Verbs - Ancient Greek elearning

Ancient Greek verbs in the future tense, active voice and indicative mood have the same verb endings as present tense verbs, ie: -ω, -εις, -ει, -ομεν, -ετε, or -ουσι(ν). However, future active indicative verbs will also have a sigma sandwiched between the verb stem and its ending. (And, if the word in question is a contract verb, the vowel preceeding this sigmatic ending will be lengthened to either an eta or an omega according to the ancient Greek contraction rules.)

In addition, future active indicative verbs will occasionally use a future-tense stem instead of the more common present-tense stem. (However, most future active indicative verbs will use the same present-tense verb stem that present active indicative verbs use.)

This page normally would show an online elearning practice test of the user's knowledge of the endings for ancient Greek verbs in the future tense, active voice and indicative mood. The test does not include accent marks, but does include α-, ε- and ο- contracts.
