Opposite Endings

Gap-fill exercise

Fill in all the gaps, then press "Check" to check your answers. Use the "Hint" button to get a free letter if a letter or an accent is giving you trouble. You can also click on the "[?]" button to get a clue. Note that you will lose points if you ask for hints or clues! For these exercises, the use of accented letters is not mandatory except in the case of "contract verbs". The use of breathings and iota subscripts, however, is mandatory.
