James Tauber: Infinitives for GNT Verbs

Post by Jonathan Robie » April 25th, 2015, 10:43 pm

James Tauber has started generating infinitive forms for all GNT verbs, you can see this on the MorphGNT github account.

This is preliminary, and may have significant errors, it is part of the morphological lexicon he will present at SBLGNT in November. He said I could post it here as long as I mention these caveats. Feedback is welcome - feel free to enter issues on github.

The most striking issue at present is that aorist infinitives don't take the augment - except if one would call something like what happens to ἄγειν (ἀγαγεῖν) an augment.

No, that's just a reduplicated aorist (stem). The indicative will have the syllabic augment: ἤγαγον.

He "just" did an update that fixes this problem.

Is there methodology behind the decision to only include the present and aorist?

Yes - see Randall Buth's post on this.

Okay. It is not meant to be an comprehensive list of all infinitives, just a list for fluency training. Is that the point?

Yes, he produced this list at my request. But he is also doing a much more complete morphological lexicon, of which this is just a small part.
