PhD Project

The aim of my dissertation project is to provide a frame-based model of agent-related adverbial modification in German. I particularly focus on the adverbs of the vorsichtig-type and the sorgfältig-type: their lexical meaning, connection to an agent, and scope. My initial hypothesis is that adverbs with agent-related readings operate on a higher level of the verbal frame, whereas manner readings operate on a lower one.My project is closely connected to the work of Project C10, which investigates adjective-noun modification in German and English. I will examine whether and which of the combinations of the adverbial use of >vorsichtig< and >sorgfältig< with certain verb classes, correspond to the combination of these adjectives and the corresponding deverbal nouns.
