THE IRREGULAR VERB FIO 167


LESSON LXVIII THE IRREGULAR VERB FIO • THE SUBJUNCTIVE OF RESULT . The verb fiO, be madCy happen^ serves as the passive of faciO, make, in the present system. The rest of the verb is formed regu- larly from faciO. Learn the principal parts and conjugation (§ 500). Observe that the i is long except before -«r and in fit. a. The compounds of faciS with prepositions usually form the passive regularly, as, Active c5nfici5, c5nficere, cSnfeci, cOnfectus Passive conficior, confici, confectus sum . Observe the following sentences :

. Terror crat tantus ut omnes fugerent, the terror was so great that 

all fled. . Terror erat tantus ut n6n facile milites sese reciperent, the terror was so great that the soldiers did not easily recover themselves. . Terror fecit ut omnes fugerent, terror caused all to flee (lit mcuie that all fled). a. Each of these sentences is complex, containing a principal clause and a subordinate clause. b. The principal clause names a cause and the subordinate clause states the consequence or result of this cause. c. The subordinate clause has its verb in the subjunctive, though it is translated like an indicative. The construction is called the subjunctive of consequence or result, and the clause is called a consecutive or result clause. //.In the last example the clause of result is the object of the verb fJcit e. The conjunction introducing the consecutive or result clause is ut = so that; negative, ut n6n = so that not. . Rule. Subjunctive of Result. Consecutive clauses of re- <".lt are introduced by ut or ut non and have the verb in the b June live. . Rule. Object clauses of result with ut or ut ndn are found after verbs of effecting or bringing about. . Purpose and Result Clauses Compared. There is great simi- larity in the expression of purpose and of result in Latin. If
