This chapter analyses the four non-finite verb forms of OR: the infinitive, the supine, the past participle, and the gerund. While certain aspects involve more than one non-finite form (occurrence as formatives in periphrastic constructions, control and raising structures, the predicative value, the competition between non-finite and finite forms, etc.), other issues involve only one non-finite form (the long and short infinitive, the evolution of the nominal, underspecified and verbal supine, the adjectival past participle, the active vs. passive value of the past participle, etc.).

Keywords:   infinitive, supine, past participle, gerund, compound verb form, control, raising, competition between forms
