Linguistic LingField(s):  Semantics

Query:   Hi linguists,

I am looking for formal semantic treatments of sentence-level adverbs like
'possibly' and 'obviously' modifying an attributive adjective, as in 'an
obviously tall man', 'a possibly relevant article', etc. I am finding lots
of treatments of these kinds of adverbs modifying sentences, as in
'Obviously, he will come,' but I am unable to find anything on the
adjective-modifying case. Can anyone point me in the right direction? I
would be much obliged.
