I'm reading "A Comprehensive Grammar of the English Language" by Randolph
Quirk et al. (1985), and they suggest that there are five primary types of
clauses, which they refer to as: (a) subject, (b) verb, (c) object, (d)
complement, and (e) adverbial. I would guess that no one has written a
Greek grammar which analysis Greek clauses using these five categories, but
I wonder would there be any problems in someone doing such? Would it make
sense to analysis Greek clauses using these five categories? Does anyone
have any thoughts on this?
