Greek is my mother tongue. I have been speaking it since I was born. Now, I downloaded this app, because in greek schools we are taught our ancient language, and it is partly different than the new one. It lacks many basic words, that are found in texts really often. Recently I was doing an excersise about the ancient greek syntax, and I couldn't translate the sentences, cause the words weren't on the app. I understand that you cant know all of the words, but can you please update the list??

I've taken biblical Greek in college, and have used it in bible study since. I love the language. This app is helpful and easily useable. It allows you to search on the Greek word using an English keyboard. The results are pithy and relevant. Great app

A good and useful dictionary. There is no search by word forms and no paradigms, it's a pity.
