(p.52) Chapter 15 Subordinate clauses filling an argument position
The Oxford Latin Syntax

Harm Pinkster

Oxford University Press

Chapter 15 deals with subordinate clauses, both finite and non-finite, which function as argument of their governing verb (traditionally called complement clauses). A distinction is made between declarative, interrogative, and imperative subordinate clauses. They are discussed according to the various subordinating devices: subordinators (e.g. quod, ut), question particles, infinitives (including accusative and infinitive clauses), gerunds, gerundives, and nominal clauses.

Keywords:   Argument, complement, nominal, clause, subordinator, question particle, infinitive, gerund
