This monograph provides an in-depth investigation of the structural
integration and the licensing of adverbs in relation to clause structure,
with special emphasis on the structural implementation of the relation
between the position and interpretation of adverbs. The book substantiates
the hypothesis that the licensing of adverbs within and across the three
layers of the clause is contingent on specifier-head agreement and that
variation in the linear order of adverbs and other elements of the clause
follows from the interplay of a small number of factors. The central claims
made are: functional projections hosting adverbs are not confined to the
inflectional and complementizer layer of the clause, but also play a
central role in the shaping of the lexical layer; postverbal adverbs are
realized within a semantically empty verbal projection and licensed under
specifier head agreement by proxy; and adverbs that occur within the
complementizer layer of the clause do so by either move or merge.
