Verbs denoting completed action (faciō, indūcō, redeō, dō) may take a participle in place of an infinitive of the same verb, rendering the description more forcible:
- Many did away with their officers: praefectōs suōs multī missōs fēcērunt.
- Many made their officers leave: praefectōs suōs multī mittere fēcērunt.
- She will get everything done: trānsactum omne reddet.
- She will work to complete everything: omne transigere reddet.
- Don’t make her angry with me: nē mihi incensam dēs.
- Don’t cause her to begim angry with me: nē mihi illiam incendere dēs.
This effect is frequent with constructions describing the actions of authors:
- Xenophon presents Socrates disputing: Xenophōn facit Sōcratem disputantem.
- Plato introduced Alcibiades drunk: Platō indūxit Alcibiādem pōtum.
