16.113 Formative of the Aorist Passive

As Croy points out in section 113, the main feature of the aorist passive is that the theta in the stem can sometimes cause changes to the preceding consonant. There are also some other odd and irregular features in the formation of the aorist passive, so the best thing to do is to simply memorize the sixth principal part of the verb, as shown in the Principal Parts chart listing the verbs for you in section 108. In the right-most column of that chart, you will see some notes alerting you to the presence of so-called "second aorist passives" which do not include a theta as part of the stem.
