ADV: adverb


In the group of Bulgarian adverbs there are words that typically modify verbs for such categories as time, place, direction or manner. They may also modify adjectives and other adverbs, as in very briefly or arguably wrong. Some adverbs can modify even [nouns] (Noun).

In BulTreeBank tagset the corresponding POS tag is D.

There is a closed subclass of pronominal adverbs that refer to circumstances in context, rather than naming them directly; similarly to pronouns, these can be categorized as interrogative, relative, demonstrative etc. Pronominal adverbs also get the ADV part-of-speech tag but they are differentiated by additional features.

In the BulTreeBank tagset the corresponding tags are as follows:


Note that there are words that may be traditionally called numerals in some languages (e.g. Bulgarian) but they are treated as adverbs in the universal tagging scheme. In particular, adverbial ordinal numerals ([bg] първо / parvo “for the first time”) are tagged ADV. The mapped tags present the neuter singular indefinite forms of the ordinal numerals: Monsi. In this way there will be ambiguity with the class of [adjectives] (ADJ).

Another adverbial numeral that goes under ADV is Md#:


Note that the symbol `#’, used in the Universal POS section indicates a holder for arbitrary number of features, suppressed in the respective tag as irrelevant in the BulTreeBank tagset, when mapped to the Universal one.
