On the other hand, the CGTS also registers almost all the differences in the Greek. For instance, there are two negatives, but they are never confused. is always NOT, is always NO.
common type and italics are used in the CGTS. The CAPITALS carry the reader as
close to the elements, which compose the Greek language, as possible. Common type
is used for words when the STANDARD would not be intelligible. For example, ,
COOL, is rendered 'soul'. The common type is also used for parts of words where
no true English standard can be found.
As English has no form for the Middle voice, which makes the subject the object of an action, this form is expressed in the passive with italic letters.
As the participle has no number in English, this is indicated by adding one for the singular and ones for the plural. Thus we have in Revelation 1:3 'one-readING' , in which the one- denotes the singular and the -ING the participle of the verb 'read'.
As English has no form for the indefinite (aorist) participle, it is distinguished by putting the 'ing' in italics.
