This chapter describes many superficially diverse adjuncts. These are then reduced to two types: underlying PPs and ‘agreeing’ adjuncts. It proposes to answer: Why only these two? A general principle for ‘valuing’ basic N and V features emerges, which identifies Abstract Case with ‘valued N’ and complement positions with ‘valued V’.

Keywords:   adjuncts, case theory, complementizer, prepositional phrase, valuing features, valued N, valued V
