8 Summary

This session has presented a new clause pattern: Subject + Verb + Complement. It has also introduced you to the linking verb εἰμί and the concept of agreement between nouns and adjectives.

In addition, you have looked briefly at how the original diversity of Greek scripts gave way to a standardised form of the alphabet.

You should understand the following terms:

  • complement
  • agreement

You should understand how the following sentences work in Greek:

  • ὁ Θεμιστοκλῆς ἐστι στρατηγός
  • Themistocles is a general
  • ἡ Ἀφροδίτη ἐστὶ καλή
  • Aphrodite is beautiful
