This book clarifies - on the basis of mainly Hungarian data - basic issues
concerning the category 'adverb,' the function 'adverbial,' and the grammar
of adverbial modification. It argues for the PP analysis of adverbials, and
claims that they enter the derivation via left- and right-adjunction. Their
merge-in position is determined by the interplay of syntactic, semantic,
and prosodic factors. The semantically motivated constraints discussed also
include a type restriction affecting adverbials semantically incorporated
into the verbal predicate, an obligatory focus position for scalar adverbs
representing negative values of bidirectional scales, co-occurrence
restrictions between verbs and adverbials involving incompatible subevents,
etc. The order and interpretation of adverbials in the postverbal domain is
shown to be affected by such phonologically motivated constraints as the
Law of Growing Constituents, and by intonation phrase restructuring. The
shape of the light-headed chain arising in the course of locative PP
incorporation is determined by morpho-phonological requirements. The types
of adverbs and adverbials analyzed include locatives, temporals,
comitatives, epistemic adverbs, adverbs of degree, manner, counting, and
frequency, quantificational adverbs, and adverbial participles.
