Fellow BibleWorks users:

I need a way to search for 1st Aorists and 2nd Aorists. Is there a way to do this in BibleWorks, perhaps with a Regular Expression search? Anyone successful with this? Or perhaps someone has compiled word lists for 1Ao and 2Ao. If so, will you share?

I've created a list of verbs forming 2Ao in the NT based on Mounce's rather helpful Morphology of Biblical Greek (cf. pp. 105-6). Grab it here: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/1838377/VerbsForming2Ao.iel

Now I think I can search all Ao and use this list as an exclusion to get 1Ao (and root Ao).

Anyone see any problems?

What about verbs that have both 1st and 2nd aorist forms. See here (http://ntresources.com/blog/?p=1119) for a brief list.

Cf. Mounce, MBG, section 44; BDF section 81 to see if those help you.
