Abstract :
Paratactic or syndetic constructions like Me rogavit facerem were optional in Classical Latin. Omission of the conjunction has survived in Spanish, where we find sentences in which que may be used or omitted. The Latin and Spanish phenomena are well known, but, as far as I know, no one has related them till now.
