Abstract

This article discusses the treatment of (English) manner satellites within the Functional Grammar framework. First, it is shown that their analysis as modifiers of the nuclear predication as a whole is not entirely satisfactory to account for the relations they hold with verbal predicates. Second, manner adverb formation in -ly is here treated as a derivational process that has to be handled by means of a Predicate Formation rule. Finally, the recent proposals of including the word class adverb in the lexicon as well as the addition of the predicate variable f are considered adequate to formalise the data presented.
