658. All vowel and consonant verbs in -ω inflect the future alike.

659. Indicative.—The future active and middle add the primary endings, and are inflected like the present; as λύ_σω, λύ_σομαι. On the two endings of the second singular middle, see 628. Liquid verbs, Attic futures (538), Doric futures (540) are inflected like contract verbs in -εω; thus φανῶ φανοῦμαι, καλῶ καλοῦμαι, and πεσοῦμαι, follow ποιῶ ποιοῦμαι (385).

a. The only future perfect active from an ω-verb is τεθνήξω shall be dead (584), which is inflected like a future active. Ordinarily the periphrastic formation is used: λελευκὼς ἔσομαι shall have loosed. The future perfect passive (λελύ_σομαι shall have been loosed) is inflected like the future middle. The periphrastic forms and the future perfect passive rarely occur outside of the indicative.

660. Optative.—The inflection is like the present: λύ_σο-ι_-μι, λυ_σο-ί_-μην. In the optative singular of liquid verbs, -ιη-ν, -ιη-ς, -ιη, in the dual and plural -ι_-τον, -ι_-την, -ι_-μεν, -ι_-τε, -ιε-ν, are added to the stem ending in the thematic vowel ο; thus φανεο-ίην φανοίην, φανέο-ι_-μεν φανοῖμεν. So in Attic futures in -άζω, as βιβάζω (539 d) cause to go: βιβῴην, -ῴης, -ῴη, pl. βιβῷμεν.

661. Infinitive.—The future infinitive active adds -εν, as λύ_σειν from λύ_σε-εν, φανεῖν from φανέςε-εν. The infinitive middle adds -σθαι, as λύ_σε-σθαι, φανεῖσθαι, from φανέςε-σθαι.

661 D. Hom. has ἀξέμεναι, ἀξέμεν, ἄξειν. Doric has -ην, -ειν; Aeolic has -ην.

662. Participle.—The future participle has the same endings as the present: λύ_σων λύ_σουσα λῦσον, φανῶν φανοῦσα φανοῦν; middle, λυ_σόμενος, φανούμενος.
