Preferred usage involves up to three named arguments:

  1. past for the simple past form, a hyphen can be used for non-existant forms
    past2 for a second past form should it exist.
    imperfect for an imperfect form - BUT only if a past form is non-existant
  2. tenses for defective verbs - those with a restricted number of tenses
    = "pres" or "present" prints: (found only in the present tense)
    = "pres-imp" prints: (found only in the present and imperfect tenses)
    = "imperfective" prints: (found only in imperfective tenses)
  3. passive for the passive form (for use with active verbs), a hyphen can be used for non-existant forms
    passive2 for a second passive form should it exist.
  4. active for the active form (for use with passive verbs).
  5. type to categorise the following verb types:
    = "passive" or "pass"
    = "mediopassive" or "med"
    = "deponent" or "dep"


Example syntaxes below are followed by their respective outputs:


δίνω (simple past έδωσα, passive form δίνομαι)


αγωνιώ (simple past )


The old positional parameters can no longer be used.
