Adverbs EMD II 211
Adverb/Evans: Standard adverbs: Example "breathless" - intensional adverbs: Example "good as King" - both receive the separation rule SR as valid - none involves functions of sets to subsets - Davidson: Other SR: attribution of sets of events to adverbs and sets of n+1-tuples, of events and n-tuples of objects, to verbs - problem: appropriate SR for "good".
II 220
Adverb/Evans: an adverb is assigned to a set of events: it really is a (single or multi-digit) predicate - "carefree": sentence adverb - "before": no sentence link - Definite Description/DD/Evans: not a term - > BrandomVsEvans: a DD is in fact a term.
