Why are there no accents? back to top
This is discussed in the book on page 17. Basically, there are no accents in The Elements of New Testament Greek for two reasons. First, accents were not in use in writing when the New Testament was written - they are a later invention. Second, they don't help and are a huge amount of extra work. (In the handful of situations when they do help, they are used and explained in the book.)

Longer chapters can be broken up in teaching. The reason there are some longer chapters is that it makes sense to group together all the relevant information under the same topic, for example, ‘Tenses’. This is less confusing for students. It would be a good idea to leave a couple of lectures free at the end of the semester for flexibility and revision.
