The constructions of indirect discourse are regulated by the character of the leading verb or expression.

a. Verbs of saying take either ὅτι or ὡς and a finite verb or the infinitive ( cross2017, cross2579).

b. Most verbs of thinking and believing take the infinitive ( cross2018, cp. cross2580).

c. Most verbs of knowing, perceiving, hearing, showing take the participle ( cross2106, cross2110), but admit the construction with ὅτι or ὡς. Some are followed by the infinitive ( cross2123 ff.).
