title: kind

clause kind

This feature is present on objects of type clause.


In version 4 this feature was called clause_kind.

This feature divides the clauses into three types: verbal, nominal and without predication. It is related to the feature typ on clauses, in the sense that each of the values of kind corresponds to a set of values of typ.

So, this is essentially a feature for convenience: it leads to more concise queries of which the intention is also clearer.
