 Abstract:
 
 Adverbials have become an important testing ground for research on the
 interfaces between syntax, semantics, and pragmatics. The articles selected
 for this volume present recent research on this topic. Among the issues
 addressed are the occurrence of adverbials in various domains of the
 sentence Mittelfeld, left and right periphery, adverbials in front of gaps,
 and the influence of the discourse context on the interpretation and
 position of adverbials. Particular classes of adverbials that are discussed
 include domain, locative, temporal, manner, transparent, and degree
 adverbials. Beyond the exploration of these topics, the volume reflects the
 current debate between proponents of semantic-driven approaches to the
 positioning of adverbials which assume adverbials to be adjuncts and
 approaches that claim a primacy of syntax in conceiving of adverbials as
 specifiers in a universally valid hierarchy of functional projections.
