Chapter Summary

Adverbial clauses are distinct from relative clauses, complement clauses and other embedded clauses which function grammatically as arguments of a clause or phrase. Adverbial clauses in Tshangla can be divided into two types, non-final and participial, according to the form of the subordinating marker on the dependent clause verb. The various adverbial clauses are distinguished from each other not only by a difference in morphological marking, but also by the type of syntactic structure in which they may occur, as will be described in this chapter. Participial adverbial clauses contain a verb inflected with one of the nominaliser or 'participle' suffixes as subordinating marker.
