Subordinate clauses filling a satellite position

(p.237) Chapter 16 Subordinate clauses filling a satellite position
The Oxford Latin Syntax

Harm Pinkster

Oxford University Press

Chapter 16 deals with subordinate clauses, both finite and non-finite, which function as satellites in their sentence (traditionally called adverbial clauses). The finite clauses with a subordinator are discussed according to their semantic function, e.g. reason, purpose, and condition. The non-finite clauses are discussed according to morphological type: infinitives, participles (including ablative absolute clauses), gerunds, gerundives, supines, and nominal clauses.

Keywords:   satellite, adverbial, clause, subordinator, ablative absolute, nominal
