xcomp: open clausal complement

An open clausal complement (xcomp) of a verb or an adjective is a predicative or clausal complement without its own subject (“without its own subject” does not mean that a clause is an xcomp just because its subject is not overt). The reference of the subject is necessarily determined by an argument external to the xcomp (normally by the object of the next higher clause, if there is one, or else by the subject of the next higher clause). These clauses are non-finite in Basque (although in some languages can be finite).
