To truly master New Testament Greek, a thorough knowledge of the vocabulary is mandatory. Mastering Greek Vocabulary offers a rapid and reasonable method for developing a working Greek vocabulary using Robinson's ingenious Cognate Group approach: allowing the student to learn the most frequent words in relationship to other words from the same stem. It does not require that one learn all the words from a given root, but it allows the student first to concentrate on terms appearing twenty-five times or more and then those used ten times or more. Once the stem is mastered, other words in the Cognate Group can be learned more easily. Additional unique features are an invaluable list of 225 identical Greek-English words; a list of derived English words; and sections concerning how prefixes and suffixes affect Greek words as well as how many prefixes and suffixes are shared by Greek and English. Mastering Greek Vocabulary gives the part of speech, a breakdown of a word's elements, and, whenever possible, a helpful memory aid. With a complete index of Greek words, it also functions like a mini-lexicon. While students may be tempted to keep this resource a secret from fellow students, teachers will want to be sure it is available.
