Latin Practice, Final Clauses

Final clauses are used to express the purpose for an action. They are formed using the subjunctive and follow, like consecutive clauses, the sequence of tense.

A typical example would be something like:
He acted bravely so that men would praise him.
Note how this differs subtly from the consecutive clause,
He acted so bravely that the men did praise him.
