I searched the web for examples of fear clauses, and I found this:
Caesar veretur ut senatus se laudet.
Does that really mean "Caesar fears that the senate might not praise him"? It's not that it's ut that i used, I know that ut and ne are inverted in fear clauses.
It's that se is used that bothers me. Wouldn't se point back at senatus, since it is the last subject noun before se?
