Abstract

The paper discusses Latin constructions consisting of <i>habere</i> &#43; infinitive. <i>Habere</i> &#43; infinitive is used to express several different meanings, both ability/capacity and various kinds of deontic modalities as well as future tense. Within the framework of Lexical-Functional Grammar, I provide a syntactic analysis (f-structure) of <i>habere</i> &#43; infinitive in each of its uses. Finally, a possible historical pathway of development is established, based on the Latin data combined with theoretical/cross-linguistic considerations.
