Book Information


Title: Die Adjektiv-Adverb-Abgrenzung im Deutschen [Adjective-Adverb-Demarcation in German]
Subtitle: Zu grundlegenden Problemen der Wortartenforschung
Written By: Claudia Telschow
Series Title: De Gruyter Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 299

The demarcation between adjectives and adverbs has been a matter of ongoing controversy in German linguistics. This book starts by presenting traditional options for categorizing words such as schnell [quick/ly] and sofort [immediate/ly]. Building on this history, it proposes a model of parts of speech that integrates lexicography and word formation research to include adjective-adverb connections in addition to strict categorization.
