advmod: adverbial modifier

An adverbial modifier of a word is a (non-clausal) adverb or adverbial phrase (ADVP) that serves to modify the meaning of the word. This includes adjectives which become adverbs when the particle ‘go’ is placed in front of the adjective i.e. ‘go hiontach’.

Examples

Averbs of direction

Fuair mé fliú mór a bhí ag dul thart `I caught a bad flu that was going around

Fuair mé fliú mór a bhí ag dul thart \n Caught I flu big [] was at going around
advmod(dul, thart)

Averbs of place

Chaithimid an oíche amuigh ar an fharraige `We spent the night out on the sea’

Chaithimid an oíche amuigh ar an fharraige \n 'Spent-we the night out on the sea'
advmod(Chaithimid, amuigh)

Adverbs of time

Níor tháinig sé go fóill `He hasn’t arrived yet

Níor tháinig sé go fóill \n Not arrived he [] yet
advmod(tháinig, fóill)

chuala mé iad ag maíomh go minic ‘I heard them stating often

chuala mé iad ag maíomh go minic \n heard me them at stating [] often
advmod(maíomh, minic)

NOTE: Some temporal constructions which bear this dependency relation are also treated as fixed multiword expressions, e.g.:

fad a bhí Fianna Fáil ar thaobh an fhreasúra `while Fianna Fáil were in opposition’

fad a bhí Fianna Fáil ar thaobh an fhreasúra \n while that were Fianna Fáil on the_side of_the opposition
advmod(bhí, fad)
fixed(fad, a)

Adverbs of manner

D’éirigh go hiontach leis `He did very well

Despite having a POS tag of ADJ, when used with the particle ‘go’ an adjective takes the role of an adverb.

D'éirigh go hiontach leis. \n 'Got_on very well with_him'
advmod(D'éirigh, hiontach)
mark:prt(hiontach, go)
