While the Adjunct Projection Principle accounts for sentential adverbs and manner adverbs, it does not – at least not in a straightforward way – account for subject-oriented adverbs, as in (17). 5 A further problem relates to the limited range of application of the Adjunct Projection Principle: it only applies to adverbs "whose lexical meaning makes it clear what they can modify" (cf. Sportiche 1988:430). e. sentence adverbs are not ordered with respect to NP, Infl and VP, and VP-adverbs are unordered with respect to THE STRUCTURAL INTEGRATION AND LICENSING OF ADVERBS 23 V and its sisters (provided the Adjacency Condition on Case Assignment is respected), as shown in (19a) and (19b), respectively ((18) & (19) adapted from Zubizarreta 1982:38, 40): (18) In the configurations: [γ ...
