329. Participle as a verbal adjective

The participle as a verbal adjective is chiefly used in the present, aorist, and perfect tenses. The temporal relation is that of the kind of time.1 The sphere of time depends on the context.

1 This temporal element is deeply imbedded in the nature of the participle and the use is universal, so that it is not necessary to draw examples from different ranges of classic Greek.
