Heavy Construction

The Allen and Greenough is still under construction; so some links may not work quite the way you would expect.


A Relative generally agrees in gender and number with appositive or predicate noun in its own clause rather than with an antecedent of different gender or number (cf. § 296. a): -

NOTE: This rule is occasionally violated: as, - flúmen quod appellatur Tamesis (B. G. v. 11), a river which is called the Thames.

a. A relative occasionally agrees with its antecedent in case (by attraction): -

NOTE: Occasionally the antecedent is attracied into the case of the relative: -

b. A relative may agree in gender and number with an implied antecedent: -

NOTE: So regularly when the antecedent is implied in a possessive pronoun: as, - nostra ácta, quós tyrannós vocás (Vat. 29), the deeds of us, whom you call tyrants. [Here quós agrees with the nostrum (genitive plural) implied in nostra.]
