dc.description.abstractThe aim of this paper is to explore the positional
variation of always in Middle and Early Modern English. It is particularly
concerned with the distributional patterns of always in clause structure
with the aid of the Helsinki Corpus. Drawing upon Quirk et al. (1985)s positional
description of adverbials, the present study provides a detailed account
of the distribution of always in three main positions, i.e., initial, medial, and
end position. The results of this study demonstrate the different distributional
patterns of always depending on its placement in clause structure. In initial
position, provided always that construction was prevalent, but it was exclusively
limited to a certain text type. In medial position, six different positional
patterns were illustrated with relevant examples. Finally, the study suggests
that always in end position bears a semantic resemblance to the Present-Day
English equivalent all the time.
