Obs. 5. As when is elliptical; as, Break your bows, as when Adonis died = Break your bows, as [ye broke them] when Adonis died. In this example, (You] break your boros is the principal sentence ; as ye broke them, an adverbial sentence of manner to break; when Adonis died, an adverbial sentence of time to broke.
