Abstract:

The structural and semantic properties of adverbials represent a still poorly
understood area of sentential syntax and semantics in Germanic languages. In
particular, it is an open question which different adverbial usages need to be
distinguished, which usages are tied to which syntactic positions, and how
these different usage can be formally analyzed. Focussing on adverbial
adjectives in German, this study provides detailed answers to these questions.
By distinguishing between verb-related adverbials and event-related
adverbials, the author provides a new analysis of the large class of
adverbials traditionally labelled as manner adverbials. It is shown that the
two different classes are linked to different syntactic positions, and formal
analyses and derivations for the two different usages are developed. The book
is therefore of interest not only to anyone working on the linguistics of
German but also to all linguists working on the syntax-semantics interface and
the formal analysis of adverbials.
