CHAPTER VI.—THE COMPLEX SENTENCE. 51. There are three kinds of subordinate sentences: the Noun Sentence, the Adjective Sentence, and the Adverbial Sentence.
52. The connecting words are usually either conjunctions or relative pronouns. Interrogative pronouns, used in asking indirect questions, likewise connect sentences. The connexion is also frequently marked by the use of adverbs or adverbial phrases, a conjunction being expressed or understood : as, My heart smote me the moment [that] he shut the door.
1. The Noun Senterca. 53. A Noun Sentence is one that stands in the place of a noun. Thus, it may be :1. Subject of a sentence : as, That you have lost your way is
evident. 2. Part of the predicate, forming the complementary nomin
ative : as, His complaint was that you deceived him. 3. Direct object after :(a) Transitive verb, active voice : as, He said that he
could do it. (6) Transitive verb, passive voice : as, I was taught
that learning is good. 4. Indirect object: as, We are desirous that you should
succeed = We are desirous of your success. 5. In apposition with :(a) A noun : as, The fact that he was with them is well
known. (6) The pronoun it: as, It is strange that you should
think so = It, viz., that you should think so, is
strange. 6. Object after :(a) An infinitive : as, He delighted to tell the young
men how everything was done. (6) A participle : as, Lord Lucan, with reluctance, gave
the order to Lord Cardigan to advance upon the guns, conceiving that his orders compelled hiin to do so.
