Die Adjektiv-Adverb-Abgrenzung im Deutschen
Zu grundlegenden Problemen der Wortartenforschung
[Adjective-Adverb Demarcation in German: Fundamental Problems in Research About Parts of Speech]
Series:Reihe Germanistische Linguistik 299
Aims and Scope
The demarcation between adjectives and adverbs has been a matter of ongoing controversy in German linguistics. This book starts by presenting traditional options for categorizing words such as schnell [quick/ly] and sofort [immediate/ly]. Building on this history, it proposes a model of parts of speech that integrates lexicography and word formation research to include adjective-adverb connections in addition to strict categorization.
