On the Adverbial use of the Ablative Case, e.g. Mil. 1124 “quin si voluntate nolet, vi extrudam foras”, see II. 58; of the Accusative, II. 36 Partim is nothing but the older form of the Accusative of pars and is so construed in Ter. Hec. prol. 15 “partim sum earum exactus, partim vix steti.” The construction of abhinc has been already discussed (II. 37). Fortasse, a by-form of which is fortassis (e.g. Bacch. 671), sometimes takes Accusative and Infinitive, e.g.
- Asin. 37 “ubi fit polenta, te fortasse dicere”,
- Truc. 680 “A. haben? B. parasitum te fortasse dicere”,
- frag. inc. 58 “fortasse ted amare suspicarier”,
- Poen. 1004 “fortasse medicos nos esse arbitrarier” ‘perhaps he thinks we are doctors,’
- Ter. Hec. 313 “fortasse unum aliquod verbum inter eas iram hanc concivisse”.
