Indirect statement in Latin shows that Latin has no CP in these sentences:
Caesarem (acc.) appropinquare dicit.
This is at the standard of a Common Entrance question - and yet the only example of a "bare" IP I find is with "believe" ---
And some Latin grammars (generative) talk about empty C -- CP phrase -
All clear now, thanks to Italian linguist - C assigns case - weird, but true.
