Item Description...
Overview
The beginning Greek student soon faces a vexing dilemma: a myriad of vocabulary words to learn and little time to learn them. One of the century's leading Greek scholars offers a solid solution by organizing Greek words according to their frequency of appearance in the New Testament. Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek helps students maximize their study by concentrating on the words that appear most often in the Greek New Testament. This venerable resource, which has served beginning language students for over fifty years, is divided into two parts. Part one lists New Testament words according to their frequency of occurrence. The usefulness of such lists is obvious, writes Metzger. By consulting them the beginner will not, so to speak, waste his time memorizing words that occur only rarely in the New Testament. He can be assured that when he has learned, say, the first 513 words in the lists he then knows all of the words (other than proper names) that occur at least 25 times in the New Testament. The second part of Lexical Aids for Students of New Testament Greek features another helpful list, grouping Greek words according to their root. Also included are appendixes that provide tools for learning Greek prepositions and the principal parts of verbs.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great for 'Word Association' Learners  Mar 24, 2007
Depending upon the style in which the reader learns best, this book may be a great asset.

If you learn via "word association" or by using cognates of words, this will help you tremendously. In most cases, a cognate is listed in the definition, which will enable the reader to associate a modern word to the Greek equivalent. Additionally, words are ordered by root (in the last half of the book) further enabling the student to remember and associate words of like definition.

If you learn by any other method, unfortunately, this book will be nothing more than a long list of words. Although it will be of service to you, it will not be the tremendous service to you that it is to word association types.

In any case, a great resource, especially for the price.
 
Excellent aid  Jan 5, 2007
Packed with features and quite economical--the best buy for students studying elementary and intermediate Greek.
 
Quick Lookup  Jan 4, 2007
It is what it is, a reference for quick lookup if you want to check to make sure of a word. Still need a dictionary for any detail.
 
More useful for the mnemonic aids than anything else  Dec 11, 2006
This helpful book by Bruce Metzger has becomed somewhat outdated, but it is still a valuable resource for the beginning student of Koine Greek. The word frequency lists do help students to focus on learning the most commonly used words in the Greek New Testament and, thereby, to rapidly build a working vocabulary.

The most helpful aspect of the vocabulary lists is the mnemonic aids that Metzger provides for some of the words. When I began to memorize Greek vocabulary I used mnemonic devices for the many words that had no English cognate or other obvious relation to an English word or meaning. Many of these devices were silly, but they made the word stick out in my mind; Metzger states that this is a good technique and believes that it is often a case of 'the sillier, the better.' I only wish that he had provided more mnemonic aids as he leaves us empty-handed in regard to many words (especially some of the more difficult words). Still, the ones he does provide are a great help.

The second half of the book, as other reviewers have noted, has been surpassed by others in newer books. I also recommend Warren Trenchard's "Complete Vocabulary Guide to the Greek New Testament" (Revised Edition) as the best and most comprehensive vocabulary resource for the beginning student - just don't allow certain portions of the book to become a crutch that keep you from memorizing the principal parts of verbs. Thomas A. Robinson's "Mastering Greek Vocabulary" is another good resource for building vocabulary through memorizing words by their cognate group; however, Trenchard's volume also provides this information (and more), so it's still the better resource. If you really want to delve into vocabulary, then try William Mounce's "The Morphology of Biblical Greek" (not recommended for the beginner or for those with short attention spans).
 
Organization a key  Oct 25, 2006
With the vocabulary ordered by use in the New Testament texts, this handy little book will have you reading and comprehending larger portions much faster than otherwise. It is a must have for any bilbical greek study. It is useful on its own as a reference, less useful as a single source tutorial, but absolutely essential for rapid study when combined with Machon or Mounce's works.
