Supplementive
quickinfo

Supplementives describe a temporary state that receives a simultaneous or conditional interpretation with respect to what is described in the main clause. Supplementives can be classified depending on whether their structure is bare or full-fledged. The absolute with-construction instantiates a full-fledged supplementive since it contains an overt subject. The bare supplementive phrase consists of a predicate without an overt subject within the supplementive phrase: bare supplementives and the absolute with-construction.
