advcl: adverbial clause modifier

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

advcl covers the following typology of cases:

Muore folgorata/VERB[VerbForm=Part] sotto la doccia
advcl(Muore, folgorata)
Quando lui muore/VERB[VerbForm=Fin] l' azienda sbanda paurosamente
advcl(sbanda, muore)
Mi fecero pagare gli hezbollah per liberare/VERB[VerbForm=Inf] due ostaggi
advcl(pagare, liberare)
risolvere i problemi di approvvigionamento alimentare acquistando/VERB[VerbForm=Ger] una fazenda
advcl(risolvere, acquistando)
