The lexicographer discusses the aspectual difference between the present and aorist participles of gi/nomai (Attic gi/gnomai). The present participle gino/mena (neuter plural) refers to events in progress (continuing, beginning, attempted) relative to the time of the main verb; the aorist participle geno/mena (also neuter plural) refers to accomplished events. This entry derives from gamma 151.
