Abstract:
			
Unlike the notion of "argument," that is central to modern linguistic
theorizing, the phenomena that are commonly subsumed under the
complementary notion "adjunct" so far have not attracted the attention
they deserve. In this volume, leading experts in the field present
current approaches to the grammar and pragmatics of adjuncts.

The contributions scrutinize i.a. the argument-adjunct distinction,
specify conditions of adjunct placement, discuss compositionality
issues, and propose new analyses of event-related modification. They
are meant to shed new light on an area of linguistic structure that is
deemed to be notoriously murky.
