How do people see the relationship between b-nouns 
and the clauses they govern? I have heard people 
talking of constructs but as I understood, such a 
relationship is really one of noun to noun, yet it 
is clear from some of the examples that I have put 
forward that this is clearly not the case as we are 
dealing with complete clauses (though this seems 
invariably with time phrases and never with other 
qualified phrases). So, do you see these clauses as 
governed just like a construct relationship or are 
these a different type of relationship? I simply 
don't know, have no position, and would like to 
know what people think.
