## Numbered example sentences

We recommend that numbered examples be avoided unless absolutely necessary, as these prove difficult at present to convert to HTML. By necessary', we mean if there is a need to refer to examples by number in a discussion (rather than saying, e.g. Example (4) shows...''). There is a workaround, however it involves duplicating material within environments specific to LaTeX and HTML. Examples of how to do this follow.

### Enumeration: Example 1 -- A single numbered example sentence

The subject of an extraposition verb such as bother' in (1) is a pleonastic element and cannot therefore be regarded as being semantically selected:

 (1) It bothers Bill that Mary left

The example was produced as follows:

The subject of an extraposition verb such as bother' in
(\ref{3ex1}) is a pleonastic element and cannot therefore
be regarded as being semantically selected:
begin{latexonly}

\enumsentence{\label{3ex1}It bothers Bill that Mary left}
end{latexonly}
begin{htmlonly}
\par
\begin{tabular}{ll}
\mbox{\htmlimage{align=nojustify}.}\label{3ex1}\&It bothers Bill that Mary left}
\end{tabular}
\par
end{htmlonly}

Note that this layout pattern must be adhered to strictly, particularly with respect to placement of labels. Note also the necessary .' in the element:


\mbox{\htmlimage{align=nojustify}.}

### Enumeration: Example 2 -- several sentences in the same numbered example

The subject of a raising verb such as seem' is either contentful or pleonastic (2) according to the complement's subject subcategorisation:

 (2) Mary seems to be happy It seems to bother Bill that Mary left

This was produced as follows:

The subject of a raising verb such as seem' is either
contentful or pleonastic (\ref{3ex3}) according to
the complement's subject  subcategorisation:

begin{latexonly}

\enumsentence{\label{3ex3}
Mary seems to be happy\\
It seems to bother Bill that Mary left}
end{latexonly}
begin{htmlonly}
\par
\begin{tabular}{ll}
\mbox{\htmlimage{align=nojustify}.}\label{3ex3}&Mary seems to be happy\\
~&It seems to bother Bill that Mary left
\end{tabular}
\par
end{htmlonly}

Note here the necessary tilde character in the first cell of the second row of the tabular. Note further that we cannot at present cope with examples that are sub-numbered (3a, 3b, etc.) as we cannot convert the LaTeX mechanism used for this to HTML. Thus, if you wish to refer explicitly to each sub-example, we recommend that you create separate numbered examples: one numbered example for each original sub-example, in an enumsentence/tabular environment of its own. Note that glosses may if necessary be numbered by adopting an approach similar to the one given here.
