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 gerundive phrase is a particular case of the clause of such type. The dependent must be clausal (or else it is an advmod) and the dependent is the main predicate of the clause.
