New project: “Adverbial clauses as non-canonical adjuncts”

I feel honored to be allowed to announce that my project Adverbial clauses as non-canonical adjuncts has been approved by the Daimler and Benz Foundation. The project intends to pursue  a new line of research by examining two patterns of adverbial clauses that have not received much attention in the literature: i) adverbial clauses having a complement clause shape and ii) adverbial clauses modifying DPs and behaving like relative clauses. Accordingly, the project output is expected to substantially contribute to the ongoing theoretical debate on adverbial clauses and gain novel insights into a better understanding of what has been referred to as subordination.
