Summary/Abstract: The article first defines the concept of asyntactic clausal connections and the concept of a compound-complex super-clausal unit as textual phenomena. The first section delimits semi-dependent and parenthetical clauses as asyntactic connections of clauses, before turning to subordinateclauses. The second section provides the focus of the article, classifying the order (postposition, anteposition, interposition) of primarily semi-dependent and parenthetical clauses in relation to independent and subordinate clauses in a compound-complex super-clausal unit. The classsification is based on excerpts from contemporary written texts selected over time by theauthor.
