A list of all forms of the participle?

Does anyone know where I can find a list of all the forms of the participle inflections? It would be nice to have charts of all possible participle forms to refer to.

Jude 1:15

καὶ περὶ πάντων τῶν σκληρῶν ὧν ἐλάλησαν κατ’ αὐτοῦ ἁμαρτωλοὶ ἀσεβεῖς. I notice that NET translates the underlined part as "the ungodly sinners". Logos says αμαρτωλος is an adjective. Can it be taken as "ungodly sinfulness"? It seems "sinfulness" would fit better for an adjective. Or is "sins" a vali...

απτω

I've often seen απτω given as meaning "to fasten to; hence , to fire, kindle...". The two basic concepts that this word can mean seem to be very different. Is there is a way to understand this culturally? Did the Greeks "fasten" material to something in order to light it, which is why we have the tw...

Subtle differences between paired Greek words

Χαίρετε, I've been very vexed by certain Greek words that are given the exact same or similar glosses. I understand that it is possible to have two different words mean essentially the exact same thing in a language. I'm okay with that and I can live with it (though it kind of irks me). This concept...

εθελω vs θελω

So apparently θελω can be in the present tense as εθελω. I'm wondering why we have this difference and if there is a difference in meaning? Does adding an augment do anything else besides change tense? The sources I've checked (BDAG and others) seem to suggest that both words have the exact same mea...

Does anyone know how or where to look up the roots of Greek words?

Re: "upon this rock" in Matthew 16:18

κ ἀγὼ δέ σοι λέγω ὅτι σὺ εἶ Πέτρος, καὶ ἐπὶ ταύτῃ τῇ πέτρᾳ οἰκοδομήσω μου τὴν ἐκκλησίαν καὶ πύλαι ᾅδου οὐ κατισχύσουσιν αὐτῆς. This is not a good argument on more than one level, but particularly here καί coordinates the clauses, not the nouns. In other news, when connecting substantives, when are ...

Re: "upon this rock" in Matthew 16:18

Hi Jeffery. I'm going to argue from the discourse analysis perspective here. Reading the text here in English and even in the Greek with just a " translation " understanding can make the context appear to suggest that Jesus was referring to Peter here. However, I would like to direct your attention ...

Re: Matthew 12:40

I see what you did there Jeffery... but the other comments are right. You're not really doing anything with ωσπερ and "for the same reason" doesn't really convey the same idea that the Greek is trying to get across. You gotta look at them together, like a type of construction. ωσπερ : BDAG says ωσπε...
