29.212 The Verbs ἀπόλλυμι / ἀπολλύω and δείκνυμι / δεικνύω

Make sure you read Croy section 212, where he introduces you to some verbs that are a mixture of -μι verb forms and omega verb forms. Over time, the older -μι verb forms were replaced with the more common omega forms, but you will still some -μι forms of these verbs in Biblical Greek.

The best way to manage with these verbs is to learn the principal parts so that you will be able to recognize these verbs when you read them, whether they appear in their -μι verb form or with the omega form. (Note that ἀπόλλυμι has both a regular future form and also a liquid future form, both of which are found in Biblical Greek.)
