Greetings. This is my first post, but I've been a lurker for a while now.

I'm studying Greek on my own and noticed the recent post about books on

I've been trying to decide between purchasing one of 3 different books:
Friberg's AGNT, Perschbacher's New Analytical Greek Lexicon, and Mounce's
Analytical Lexicon.

I've not yet looked through Mounce's, but I see from the comments here
that it must be a good one. I have looked through Friberg's AGNT, but I
found the parsing codes difficult. Also, I have looked at Perschbacher's
and lean toward it because it partially spells out the parsing which I can
recognize faster than Friberg's codes. However, I have heard that most
scholars are using the Friberg AGNT, and I haven't heard much about
Perschbacher's. I'm kind of at a loss as to which one would be better for

Does anyone have an opinion on Perschbacher's? And which one or more of
these analytical lexicons would be best for a self-learner?

Thanks much!
