The internal structure of adverbial clauses

The purpose of this questionnaire is:

  • to find out whether there are systematic correlations between the semantic types of adverbials on the one hand and their expression formats on the other both within and across the languages of Europe;
  • to find out whether these correlations are connected with other features of the languages concerned, in particular:
  • their general system of subordination.
  • their system of complementation.
  • their parts-of-speech system.
