Modal adverbs

Modal clause adverbs express modalities like possibility, probability, and so on.


Modal clause adverbs include the following:

Table 1
blykber apparently
perfoarst, beslist definitely
faaks, miskien maybe
miskien possibly
fansels, natuerlik of course, naturally
wierskynlik probably
In some cases, there are semantic equivalents belonging to a different syntactic category. So, the adjectival adverb wierskynlik probably is roughly equivalent to the Adposition Phrase (PP) foar it neist for the closest > probably. All modal adverbs can occur either in initial position or in the middle field.
