Is There an Adverbial in This Text? (And If So, What Is It Doing There?)
Tottie, Gunnel
The results of studies of English adverb usage undertaken by Swedish university students participating in a research and writing skills program are summarized. The studies focus on the incidence of structural and semantic types of adjuncts used in two samples of spoken and written British English. Frequency distributions are charted and accompanied by a narrative analysis. The research projects have produced insights into the frequency and types of adjuncts used. Similar research into this and other adverb types would be useful. (MSE)
