It points to a futile desire to avoid the hexameter tag-----. i The combinations of participle and auxiliary that would naturally occur most frequently do not give position (tractus, tracta, tractum est: tracti, tractae, tracta sunt). Our investigations thus far have been based on statistics from the collection of sentence-endings. If we extend them to the interior clausulae we shall find that there also the same tendencies toward the avoidance of position in the first unaccented syllable and the effort to secure it in the second assert themselves, but to a less extent. It will be of advantage to make this evident in such a way as at the same time to summarize our results for the final clausulae. The estimates for interior clausulae are founded upon Book XXI. In form I, type y (nosse confingit) when the clausula is final the syllable preceding the caesura fails to make position in 97 per cent of the cases, and the syllable following the caesura makes position in 79 per cent; when the clausula is interior the respective percentages are 87 and 68. In I;'d (vilis et parvd) final clausulae show the syllable preceding the;' caesura positionally short in 97 per cent of the cases and the monosyllable long by position in 98 per cent; interior clausulae in 95 per cent and 91 per cent respectively. In I 6 (passibus citis) the first unaccented syllable must always be short in virtue of the penultimate law: the second displays positional lengthening in approximately 90 per cent of the clausulae both final and interior.
