[*] 568. Substantive Clauses of Result with ut (negative ut nōn ) are used as the object of verbs denoting the accomplishment of an effort. 1 Such are especially faciō and its compounds ( efficiō , cōnficiō , etc.):—
- “efficiam ut intellegātis ” (Clu. 7) , I will make you understand (lit. effect that you, etc.). [So, faciam ut intellegātis (id. 9).]
- “commeātūs ut portārī possent efficiēbat ” (B. G. 2.5) , made it possible that supplies could be brought.
- “perfēcī ut ē rēgnō ille discēderet ” (Fam. 15.4.6) , I brought about his departure from the kingdom.
- “quae lībertās ut laetior esset rēgis superbia fēcerat ” (Liv. 2.1) , the arrogance of the king had made this liberty more welcome.
- ēvincunt īnstandō ut litterae darentur (id. 2.4), by insisting they gain their point,—that letters should be sent. [Here ēvincunt = efficiunt .]
[*] Note.--The expressions facere ut , committere ut , with the subjunctive, often form a periphrasis for the simple verb: as,invītus fēcī ut Flāminium ē “senātū ēicerem” (Cat. M. 42) , it was with reluctance that I expelled Flaminius from the senate.
