Remarks on transparent adverbs

Publication: Bucharest Working Papers in Linguistics, IX (1)
Publisher:Universitatea din București
Abstract:The paper explores the contrast arising between subject/object oriented depictives and manner adverbs. We adopt Geuder’s (2004) label of “transparent” adverbs and embark upon a comparison between this particular class and manner adverbs in English and Romanian, with a look at depictive constructions as well. The problem discussed here is the ambiguity arising in Romanian where most such adverbs seem to overlap their corresponding adjectival forms. Tests will show where they have to be adjoined and the possible readings which they are attached.
Key words:manner adverbs, depictives, transparent adverbs, English, Romanian
