The Oxford Latin Syntax

Harm Pinkster

Oxford University Press

The chapter deals with constituents that function as adjunct or disjunct in their clause. Within both categories further semantic distinctions are made. The criteria used to distinguish the various types of adjunct are question words and the possibility for different adjuncts to occur in the same clause. For each semantic type of adjunct whenever possible a distinction is made in accordance with the types of constituents that may be used in those functions, such as noun phrases (in the accusative, dative, or ablative case), prepositional phrases, and adverbs. Some adjuncts are sensitive to the content of the nucleus of the sentence (for instance, they only occur with controlled states of affairs), others are not. Disjuncts are divided into attitudinal and illocutionary disjuncts.

Keywords:   adjunct, disjunct, co-occurrence of adjuncts, question words, noun phrases, prepositional phrases, adverbs, control, attitudinal disjuncts, illocutionary disjuncts
