The text of this new edition is substantially that of the second edition, but a number of sections have been rewritten entirely or in part, notably those on the historic present and the future indicative. There is a new section on the aorist of performative verbs, which replaces that on the aorist of verbs of emotion. Several notes have been rewritten or added, e.g. on the uses of me‰llw. The part on the oblique optative has been considerably modified. A number of examples have been replaced by more relevant texts, and some twenty new examples have been added. The bibliography has been brought up to date. Two important changes concern the addition of an Index locorum and of a sixteen-page summary, ‘Essentials of Syntax and Semantics’. The summary makes it possible to have a quick look at the basic syntactic properties of the Greek verb; at the same time it may serve as a repertory that can be memorized.
