advcl: adverbial clause modifier

An adverbial clause modifier is a clause which modifies another clause (temporal, consequence, conditional, purpose, etc). The dependent must be clausal (or else it is an advmod) and the dependent is the main predicate of the clause.

Tupinambá adverbial dependent clauses require the verb to be in the gerund (VerbForm=Ger).

Tasóne emonã tekó potá \n  I shall go wanting things this way
advcl(tasóne, potá)

When the dependent verb is intransitive coreferential argument indexes are used (switch-reference)

Ajur witu \n I ago in order to stay
advcl(ajur, witu)
