Entry from British & World English dictionary
A clause which contains neither a finite verb nor the infinitive marker ‘to’, for example him groan in I heard him groan.
- Thus, if a language has long-distance reflexivization with indicatives, then it will necessarily have it with (if relevant) subjunctives, infinitives, small clauses, and NPs.
For editors and proofreaders
Line breaks: small clause
