  • rdfs:comment ""The Portuguese inflected infinitive (PII) is a unique form of infinitive. An (uninflected) infinitive is not marked for person or tense ([-TENSE, -AGR]), but an inflected infinitive has orthographic inflection that allows for person (and number) agreement, and is marked [-TENSE, +AGR]. The inflected infinitive also allows for the optional inclusion of a lexical subject in the infinitival phrase. The inflected infinitive is relatively rare. It has been found in a handful of other languages; according to Scida (2005), the inflected infinitive exists or existed in Galician, Sardinian, Old Neapolitan, Old Leonese, and Mirandese. Additionally, the inflected infinitive exists in Hungarian (Kiss 2002) and existed in Old English (Lass 1994)." (Harris 2013:303)
