V that

Structure information

The that-clause is a new clause, with its own structure. This structure has a passive with the pattern be V-ed,where the that-clause is the Subject, but it very rarely occurs.However, there is a related passive structure beginning with introductory it, as in It was agreed that he was an excellent teacher with a sense of humour. This pattern is discussed in more detail in Chapter 9, Section 1, where the pattern it V that is also discussed. The phrasal verb pattern is the same except that there is a particle, P, which comes after the verb.
