23.165 Tense and Time in the Subjunctive

Please disregard Croy section 165. Croy's discussion here is unnecessarily confusing since he does not talk about aspect separately from tense.

As explained already, there is no sense of time or tense in the subjunctive. The subjunctive mood has no tense. Instead of tense, the subjunctive does have aspect, although the distinction between the present aspect and the aorist aspect is extremely difficult to translate into English. Review these notes about Greek verb aspect to make sure you are clear about what this means.
