Abstract:
			
This book presents a detailed corpus-based study of adverbial
subordinate clauses in English within the framework of the theory of
Functional Grammar. On the basis of an in-depth data analysis, this
study shows that there is a systematic correlation between the
semantic types of adverbial clauses, on the one hand, and the verb
forms by means of which these constructions are expressed in English,
on the other.
In contrast to most traditional classifications, the criterion used
for the semantic classification of adverbial clauses is not simply the
basic meaning of the conjunction introducing the subordinate
clause. Instead, the present classification is based on the systematic
and consistent application of four semantic parameters: Entity Type,
Time Dependency, Factuality and Presupposition. The relevance of the
application of these parameters is not only that they allow to
establish a complete and exhaustive typology of adverbial clauses, but
also that they form the basis for four implicational hierarchies that
determine the distribution of expression formats along the different
semantic types of adverbial clauses.
This book also constitutes a contribution to the application of
Functional Grammar to the corpus-based analysis of a specific language
and, more specifically, to the validation of the hierarchical model of
the structure of the clause postulated within this theoretical
framework.
