The Early Latin Verb System


Oxford University Press

Subjunctives of the type attigās clearly have old aorist stems, but the origin of the subjunctive morpheme remains unclear. As with the other extra-paradigmatic subjunctives the meaning is always non-past. Again we find the same restrictions of use: absence in commands and ut-clauses, but high frequency in prohibitions and subordinate -clauses. Like most other archaic forms they belong to an elevated register.

Keywords:   aorist stems, non-past meaning, absence in commands, ut-clauses, high frequency, prohibitions, subordinate nē-clauses, elevated register
