9 Greek verb endings
We saw earlier from Euripides that Greek can express phrases like ‘I have come’ without using the personal pronoun ‘I’. Although personal pronouns exist in Greek, they are usually omitted unless an author wishes to emphasise them. The ending of the verb is enough to show who is doing the giving. Euripides could have added the word ἐγώ (egō, ‘I’) but the omega at the end of the verb ἥκω (hēkō) makes this unnecessary.
