Imperfect of διεστέλλετο

Hello:

I am reading Mounce's online Teknia blog entry regarding chapter(21) regarding the Imperfect Indicative.

In this post on aktionsart, he mentions the greek word διεστέλλετο.

I am not understanding where the augment is found in this word.

Is this a compound verb?

Re: Kappa translitereated as "k" and "c"

I am asking about Greek words that enter English.

For example, koine.

Kappa translitereated as "k" and "c"

Hello:

When do you know to transliterate kappa as "k" or "c"?

What are some examples of Greek words that have been transliterated both ways?

Thanks,

If you drop the genitive case ending, you are supposed to arrive at the stem...but this isn't the case here. Can someon...
