Verb Types

Greek verbs are grouped into six different types, depending on their conjugation pattern.



Nominative Case

Also known as the “naming case,” the nominative is the case needed for nouns and pronouns that serves as either the subject or subject complement.




Greek has three genders, and because it’s a case language, knowing the gender of every noun is vital. Articles and adjectives have different forms to agree with the gender of their nouns, and there are also different forms for each case the noun is used in – which means many more opportunities to make mistakes.


Definite Article

The Greek definite article has different forms depending on the gender, number, and case of its noun.
