<DIV><FONT size=2>Paul, you should have a look at the following: </FONT><FONT
size=2>Robinson, T. A. 1991. <EM>Mastering Greek vocabulary</EM>, 2nd rev. ed.
Peabody: Hendrickson. </FONT></DIV>
<DIV><FONT size=2>Robinson's approach to teaching Greek vocabulary relies
heavily on the use of English words derived from NT Greek. In chapter 1 he lists
all the words that have a direct English equivalent, such as ABBA - abba,
ABUSSOS - abyss, AGKURA - anchor, etc. Chapter 3 is titled "Derived English
Words"; it lists words that are less directly derived. Here's one

<DIV><BR></DIV><FONT size=2>&gt; <BR>&gt; Does anybody know of a book that gives
Greek words and their<BR>&gt; corresponding <BR>&gt; English
derivatives?&nbsp;&nbsp; I have often thought that such a book surely
must<BR>&gt; exist but<BR>&gt; have not stumbled upon it just yet.&nbsp; It
would certainly be handy and<BR>&gt; useful.<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; You know of what I
speak.&nbsp; For instance, take PNEUMA (then pneumatics,<BR>&gt; pneumatology,
etc.).<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; Thanks,<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt; Paul Dixon<BR>&gt; <BR>&gt;
