37. Type A verbs sometimes enter into objective with infinitive constructions. In such constructions it is impossible to gathér from their form whether the objective is governed by the preceding finite verb or by the infinitive following. We niay, however, safely assume that the fact that in other cases the objective belonged to the preceding verb, while in its turn it governed the infinitive (instead of being governed by it, as in 'that made me to mete'), helped ultiniately to subvert the original relation between the infinitive and its complement in the case of type A verbs.
