Subordinate subjects in Written Manchu can be in nominative, accusative or genitive forms. Genitive subjects have the function not only of introducing information in focus in the subordinate clauses but also of implying stylistic features seen in verse. ○si-men-king(nom.) boodejihe seme donjirejakade, "They heard Si-men King came home, and then". There is no mention about the event, i.e. the return home of Si-men King, in context around this utterance, and the author thinks that this is an example of unmarked information. ○si-men-king be(acc.)jihe seme donjifi, "They heard Si-men King came, and".
