The article deals with the main peculiarities of sentence complements of volitional verbs such as desire, wish, hope, intend, advise, ask, beg, charge, appoint, require, command, instruct, order, allow, ask, advise, choose, promise, instruct in Early Modern English. The material of present research is taken from different genre texts (tragedies, comedies, historical chronicles, poems) in this period from corpus of W. Shakespeare, T. Middleton, J. Milton. The research highlights the hypotactic relationship between the superordinate and the subordinate clauses in a complex sentence and considers their correlation in the history of English language. The results obtained find out predicate status grammatical indicators in additional clauses and outline the factors influencing the grammatical setting of the verb in a complementary sentence. As our investigation witnesses it Early Modern English period represents further active formation of hypotaxis syntax and distribution of complex sentenses which is determined by the system of lingual means as to its realization, namely the conjunction subordinate relation, setting of a complementary sentence verb in subjunctive mood. Correlation between the main and additional sentences is defined as sustainable developed with relative markers of subordination as that, what that takes a complementary finite sentence to complete semantics of matrix volitional predicates. The paper analyzes the usage of verbs in the superordinate and subordinate clauses in indicative or subjunctive moods in complex sentences of this research period. We wintess the occurrence of matrix volitional verbs in present, preterite indicative or imperative that influences the grammatical indicator of a finite verb form in a subordinate sentence which may be expressed in a subjunctive mood, namely present, preterite or analytical forms. Modal tense paradigm in complex sentense structures with verbs of will is ourlined in Early Modern English as the following correlation: indicative/imperative – indicative; indicative/imperative – subjunctive.
