8.2.Semantic types of adverbial modifiers

This section adopts the division between VP and clause adverbials introduced in Section 8.1 as its point of departure. Sections 8.2.1 and 8.2.2 provide a more detailed semantic subdivision of these adverbials and investigate to what extent the various subcategories satisfy the adverbial tests introduced in Section 8.1, sub III. Section 8.2.3 concludes with a more detailed discussion of the spatio-temporal adverbials: Section 8.1 has shown that these adverbials can be used either as VP adverbials or as clause adverbials and we will investigate the differences in semantic contribution of these two uses.
