Purpose and Result Clauses
1) PURPOSE CLAUSES
Veniunt ne civitates
Haec dicit ut
discipuli omnia intellegant.
Multos libros legit ne
English has basically two ways to show purpose:
"She is coming to help (or in order to help)."
"They are sending him to tell you what to do."
"The dog has a long nose to smell better."
order to serve you better, our store has
installed anti- theft devices."
"She is coming so that she may help."
"They are sending him so that he may tell you what to do."
"The dog has a long nose so that it may smell better."
order that we may serve you better, our
store has installed anti-theft devices."
Scripserunt ita male
ut nemo litteras legere posset.
tenebat ut territi hostes fugerent.
In English a Result Clause often comes with
adverbs like "so"
or "such" in the
main clause, and the result clause itself is introduced by the subordinating
"They wrote so badly that no one could read the letter."
a good athlete that
she easily jumped over the fence."
