[b-greek] Re: The negative particle "ou" with verbs

Dear Wayne,

In answer to your question I'll quote from my Paul Kaufman NT Greek
grammar. "OU is generally placed before the word it negatives, thus:
OU GINWSKW AUTON,I do not see him (cf. Mt 26:74). Usually it is placed
immediately *before* the verb."

I hope that this helps.
