Both Zerwick and Rienecker/Rogers give some parsing details on less usual
words. They are very handy to use, though I have always used, and prefer,

Another way to go is to use Baker Pub's Analytical Greek NT (if it is still
in print) by Barbara and Timothy Friberg. It has the greek text with the
gramatical analysis underneath (in a code for the parts of speech) This
does not give a meaning, though.

ummm but none of this makes for good breakfast conversation, and you don't
want to get too many crumbs in your books. :-)

There was a thread earlier on this list, on reading greek text (with or
without such help) which might be useful for you to read. I haven't got the
