- This paper classifies and analyzes the patterns of the occurrence of temporal adverbials in complex sentences that appear in the domain of Korean weather news and then suggests the ways to determine whether these adverbials modify the main verb or the verb in the embedded clause. It also implements these methods in the computer programming language Prolog and shows a sample run for each pattern of the occurrence of temporal adverbials. Since weather situations are closely related to time, the analysis of these adverbials is helpful in doing machine translation of complex sentences containing them into English correctly.
