198 distinguished. This has the admirable effect, worthy of imitation, of enabling the user to check all of R.'s data and analyses. It also contains an index locorum, though no full bibliography and author index. For general linguists the book will perhaps not be easy to read, due to both the terminology and the cautious style of the author and her striving after completeness. For those interested in semantics (especially those with little knowledge of Latin) it leaves a number of points untouched, such as the question of semantic differences between the morphological types, or of semantic restrictions upon forms of VN complementation, or of the degree to which semantic properties of basic verbs play a role in determining the mor- phological subclass of VN; this is due to the selfimposed limitation to attested, observeable, syntactic behaviour. However, the book is certainly an indispensible, well documented and accurate survey to be consulted by any Latin linguist interested in the behaviour of verbal nouns. It furthermore contains a rich amount of well con- sidered details concerning the interpretation of individual passages from which philologists may profit as well as linguists.
