Verbs of permitting will take either a Substantive Clause of Purpose (ut/nē + subjunctive) or an Infinitive.
- He permitted them to make toys: permīsit ut facerent lūdibria.
- He did not allow tents to be pitched: tentōria statuī nōn passus est.
- She will allow you to pass: concēdet perīre.
- They do not allow the importation of wine: vinum importārī nōn sinunt.
