Abstract
Sentence-modifying Domain adverbs in English (e.g. politically and surgically) show several unusual syntactic features. They may occur to the left of inverted subject and
auxiliary, rarely if ever appear between subject and main verb, and occur inside the VP, in positions otherwise reserved for verb-modifying adverbs. In keeping with the general approach of Jackendoff(1972) and Ernst(1984), this paper proposes that this be handled by means of unrestricted base generation of adverbs, and an interpretation rule for sentential Domain adverbs which applies anywhere in the sentence, as opposed to the rule for other sentential adverbs which excluded adverbs under VP and to the left of inverted Aux and NP. This approach is shown to be preferable to more traditional, syntactic accounts in a number of ways.
