3-4) (6) y te Lundeniscefolc him underfeng .... 3. The Nominal Clause In this corpus there were only four clauses (less than 1 per cent) which filled the subject slot, one of which was an impersonal. Not counted here were clauses such as: ΡΆ gelamp hit ... ' 'Then it happened ... 24-25) It would not be going too far astray to consider hit merely as an expletive and the clause as the true subject. Several of these constructions occurred in the corpus. Be that as it may, examples of the clause regarded as filling the normal subject slot are as follows: PRIMARY CLAUSE-LEVEL TAGMEMES 35 (1) Pe nan ne heafde staerf of hungor.

Flemden se oöer abbot Heanri ut of l>a mynstre. 'And the count and all the chief men ... 1-2) (3) pe erthe ne bar nan corn. 8) In the first example se is used with a noun in the object slot of the preposition; in the second, with a noun in the direct object slot. The filler of the subject slot, fie, in the third example (from the Final Continuation, which incidentally contained only one occurrence ο he) was invariable for all numbers, cases, and genders. If it were not for word order and lexical association, it would be hard to say whether the subject was fie erthe or nan com.

The latter was also one of the verbs in the two patterns with three verbs. All of these, since the corpus is a chronicle, of necessity occurred frequently as simple main verbs. The quasi-auxiliaires were finite verbs whose common function was as a main verb. In this corpus, they occurred only with infinitives. Four plain infinitives and eight to-infinitives appeared with quasi-auxiliaries. Of the nine quasi-auxiliaries, only two occurred more than once: herdon three times and suoren twice. The others were unnan, wendan, betxcan, gifan, lyhtan, myntan, and tacan.
