On the Valency of Various Types of Adverbs and Its Lexicographic Description


This paper deals with the neglected issue of the valency of adverbs. After providing a brief theoretical background, a procedure is presented of extracting the list of potentially valent adverbs from two syntactically parsed corpora of Czech, SYN2015 and PDT. Taking note of the methodological and theoretical problems surrounding this task, especially those relating to the fuzzy boundaries of word classes, we outline the types of adverbs identified as having valency properties. Where appropriate, we comment on – and occasionally suggest improvements in – the lexicographic treatment of valent adverbs.
