877. The supplementary participle completes the idea expressed by a verb, by stating that to which its action relates. It often approaches very near the use of the object infinitive. It may belong to either the subject or the object of the verb and agree with it in case. E.g. Παύομέν σε λέγοντα, we stop you from speaking; παυόμεθα λέγοντες, we cease speaking.
