Verbs are action words: I run, I talk, I see

The present tense in Greek is used for action seen as in process, presented as unfolding ‘now’ before the reader’s or hearer’s eyes.

λύειλύουσι (ν)

This is a paradigm: an example pattern of a completely regular verb. Practise reciting this pattern. Once you know it, you will be able to recognise other verbs, because you will recognise the person endings. In a Greek lexicon (dictionary), verbs are listed under the first person singular, present active tense: λύω I untie

Look at the following list of verbs: who is doing the action? (I, you, we, etc) What would you look up in the lexicon?

Example: βλέπεις      -εις is the ending for you (s)
To find it in the lexicon, restore the – ω to the stem and look up βλέπω: I look

Therefore translate the original word, you look/you are looking

Try the following. Click on the word for an explanation:
 bit ἀκούετε  bit διδάσκομεν  bit λαμβάνεις  bit ἔχει  bit ἄγουσιν  bit λέγεις  bit

You hear [ἀκού - ετε this is the ending for you (pl); look up ἀκούω : I hear] We teach [διδάσκ - ομεν this is the ending for we; look up διδάσκω: I teach] You take/receive [λαμβάν - εις this is the ending for you (s); look up λαμβάνω: I take/receive] He or she has [ἔχ - ει this is the ending for he or she; look up ἔχω: I have] They lead [ἄγ - ουσιν this is the ending for they; look up ἄγω; I lead You say or speak [λέγ - εις this is the ending for you (s); look up λέγω: I say or speak]
