18.127 The Present Participle of εἰμί

Make sure you study the form of the present participle εἰμί which Croy presents in this section. Although you are not required to memorize the accent marks, you might take a look at the way the circumflex accent appears in some forms of this paradigm.

Also, as you will see in the Practice Sentences, the verb ὑπάρχω is also used to mean "be", so the participle ὑπάρχων can also be translated as "being". The Greek language has an amazing range of ways to express the notions of being, existing, becoming, etc. The distinctive qualities of these Greek verbs are notoriously difficult, even impossible, to translate into English.
