Some verbs add -ί_-μην, -ο-ί_-μην to the tense-stem ( cross709).—a. κτάομαι (κτα-) acquire, perf. κέκτημαι possess ( cross1946): opt. κεκτη-ί_-μην κεκτῄμην, κεκτήι_-σο κεκτῇο, κεκτή-ι_-το κεκτῇτο. Less frequent and doubtful are κεκτῴμην, -ῷο, -ῷτο, -ῴμεθα from κεκτη-ο-ί_-μην, etc.

c. καλέω (καλε-, κλη-) call, perf. κέκλημαι am called ( cross1946); opt. κεκλη-ί_-μην, etc. = κεκλῄμην, κεκλῇο, κεκλῇτο, κεκλῄμεθα.

d. βάλλω (βαλ-, βλη-) throw, perf. διαβέβλημαι, opt. διαβεβλῇσθε.

N.—The forms in -ῄμην, etc., have the μι-form; the doubtful -ῴμην, etc., belong to the ω-conjugation.
