advcl: adverbial clause modifier

An adverbial clause modifier (advcl) is a clause which modifies a verb or other predicate (adjective, etc.), as a modifier, not as a core complement. This includes temporal clauses, consequences, conditional clauses, purpose clause, etc. The dependent must be clausal (otherwise, it is an advmod) and the dependent is the main predicate of the clause.
