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.

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

Oho ʔɨ pupe ipiraʔi pɨhɨkpa \n  It goes into the water to catch little fishes
advcl(oho, pɨhɨkpa)

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

Iʔi izupe uhapukazta \n She says screaming
advcl(iʔi, uhapukazta)
