A rather recent edition of this Analytical Lexicon mentions (as I recall)
that there were a number of errors in the original that went uncorrected
for a long time, hence the recent update/correction.

Also, Zondervan publishes an Analytical Lexicon by William Mounce that is
also keyed to Mounce's Morphology book.

In his intro, Mounce writes: "If used as a crutch, the student will never
develop a true facility with the language. And it may lull laypersons into
a false sense of security, thinking that because they can parse a word,
they therefore know what it means. ... Who should not use this volume? (1)
A first-year Greek student. The only way to learn the language is to
struggle. ... (2) Those who know a little Greek ... because a cursory
exposure to Greek cannot convey the complexity and beauty of the language."
He then goes on and explains who should use it, and why and how.
