Sample text

Major classes of adverbials At least since the publication of Greenbaum’s () study of adverbials, it has been common to distinguish three main classes in the description of adverbials in English. Greenbaum’s terms adjunct, disjunct and conjunct were carried over to Quirk et al. ( and ). The corresponding terms in Biber et al. (: ) are circumstance, stance and linking adverbials. The definitions of the categories, however, are the same as in Quirk et al. (: ff and : ).

Means adjuncts specify by what means something was carried out. e. means of transportation, as in the example below. An instrument adjunct specifies an instrument used in carrying out an action. Method adjuncts are related to both instrument and means, but specify in somewhat greater detail the method by which something is attempted or achieved. Attire adjuncts specify the appearance, clothing, etc. of someone, while role/capacity adjuncts denote the role or capacity in which a participant – usually the subject – is involved in a process.

Ff) as subjuncts expressing temporal relationship, duration and frequency. Examples are just, already, yet, still, seldom, never. They are seen as subordinate in relation to the finite verb, since they seem to emphasise or specify the temporal orientation of the tense and/or aspect of the verb. The time subjuncts listed often overlap in meaning with other adverbials classified as adjuncts in preceding passages, and it is noted that it is often hard to draw a line between subjuncts and adjuncts of time (: , note).
