ccomp: clausal complement

Clausal complement is an object like clausal dependent. The governor is most commonly, although not always, the main verb or predicative of the main clause, and the dependent is the main verb or predicative of the dependent clause. The clausal complement can also modify a word other than a verb, most often a noun or pronoun. Most commonly clausal complements are verbal nouns in accusative or dative.

Ол терезеден Азамат пен Айгүлдің ойнағанына қарап тұр . \n She window-through Azamat and Aygül's playing watching stands .
nsubj(қарап-7, Ол-1)
obl(қарап-7, терезеден-2)
nsubj(ойнағанына-6, Азамат-3)
conj(Азамат-3, Айгүлдің-5)
cc(Айгүлдің-5, пен-4)
ccomp(қарап-7, ойнағанына-6)
aux(қарап-7, тұр-8)

Another example:

Сайттың маңызды екенін түсінбей жатыр . \n Site importance being not-understanding is .
ccomp(түсінбей-4, маңызды-2)
cop(маңызды-2, екенін-3)
nmod:poss(маңызды-2, Сайттың-1)
aux(түсінбей-4, жатыр-5)
punct(түсінбей-4, .-6)

Note that if the complement is completely controlled by the matrix verb, that is it does not permit another subject or object, then the relation should be xcomp.

We also use ccomp for the complement of reported speech clauses with де- (e.g. деп, деген, …)

« Төрге шық , тамақ іш » , - демепті . \n « Tör-to go-back , food drink » , - said-not-they .
ccomp(демепті-10, іш-6)
obj(іш-6, тамақ-5)
conj(іш-6, шық-3)
obl(шық-3, Төрге-2)
punct(демепті-10, .-11)
