26.187 Prohibitions

Make sure you read Croy section 187 where he gives examples of how the present imperative with μή or the aorist subjunctive with μή can be used to express prohibitions (i.e., negative commands). Each time a Greek speaker wants to make a prohibition, they can choose between these two forms. The best way to learn the difference in connotation between the imperative and subjunctive prohibition is to read as much Greek as possible, paying attention to the choices you see the Greek speakers making in the text. You need to be able to recognize both the imperative prohibition and the subjunctive prohibition in the Practice Sentences for this week.
