ccomp: clausal complement

A clausal complement of a verb or adjective is a dependent clause which is a core argument. That is, it functions like an object of the verb, or adjective.

Виждам , че идва често . \n See-I that comes-he often .
ccomp(Виждам, идва)
ccomp(See-I, comes-he)

Such clausal complements may be finite or nonfinite. However, if the subject of the clausal complement is controlled (that is, must be the same as the higher subject or object, with no other possible interpretation) the appropriate relation is xcomp.

Аз обичах да разговарям с него . \n I liked to speak with him .
ccomp(обичах, разговарям)
ccomp(liked, speak)
Невеста Нена престана да вика . \n Aunt Nena stopped shouting .
xcomp(престана, вика)
xcomp(stopped, shout)

Example with copula:

Трудно е да я накараш да признае . \n Difficult-it is to her make confess .
ccomp(Трудно, накараш)
ccomp(Difficult-it, make)
