Mi-verbs

-mi verbs are a class of athematic verbs in Ancient Greek. The name derives from the first person singular form of the verbs in the present indicative active, which is the dictionary form. The person marker is -mi, e.g. ειμί (ei-mí), δίδωμι (dídw-mi), φημί (fh-mí). The conjugation of mi-verbs differs from the much more common omega conjugation.
