I have a 7-page handout on verb forms showing their formation by
constituent elements; this is something I give my first-year students once
they have completed the morphology of the verb sometime in the second
semester. I'd be willing to send this out to anyone who wants it as an
e-mail attachment, but there are two limitations on it: (1) it is a MS Word
6.0 Macintosh file; it's readable as Word 6.0 for Windows and probably
could be converted to any other Mac or Windows WP format; but (2) it uses
SMK Greek fonts (commercial, but available for either Mac or Windows) and
couldn't be printed unless you have one of those fonts. So: with those
caveats, I'm willing to send it to anyone that wants it.
