Criteria for the Classification of English Adverbials

Output: Boek

  • Joost Buysschaert
The study discusses the subclassification of the heterogeneous category of adverbials and is to an important extent intended as an illustration of general assumptions on the aims and methods of linguistics. A series of criteria is examined for the distinction between "essential complements" and "free modifiers" and for the distinction between "S-modifiers" and "V-modifers". It is shown that the resulting typology, in conjunction with information structure rules, offers a reliable basis for explaining the position, order and intonation of English adverbials.
