Summary/Abstract: The object of this paper is non-nominal phrases, which are traditionally described as non-standard realisations of the subject. This standpoint is assumed also by M. Gębka-Wolak and M. Świdziński, who find infinitive and clausal realisations non-standard realisations of the subject-nominative understood in the narrow sense, according to SWJP definition, as a component accommodated mutually by the finite form. We believe that the equivalence of the units regards the deep structure. This is because syntactic analysis proves that the observed surface structures are built around the centre, which is an improper verb that not seldom has homonymic forms with the proper verb. We allow not only for syntactic relations (described in I.A. Mel’čuk’s relation instrument) but also for morphological agreements between components, as well as for tests of coordination with the components the morphological and syntactic properties of which are unambiguous.
