14. Adverbs and adverbials

From the book Semantics - Lexical Structures and Adjectives

  • Claudia Maienborn and Martin Schäfer


The article offers an overview of the heterogeneous set of lexical and semantic classes and subclasses of adverbs and adverbials with their characteristic inferential and distributional properties. Furthermore, it sketches major theoretical approaches that have been developed to account for adverbial semantics and introduces some current issues of debate concerning the proper combination of lexical, compositional, and conceptual semantics for adverbials.
