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 (or else it is an advmod) and the dependent is the main predicate of the clause.

Turkish adverbial clauses are mainly formed through morphological inflections.

Ali gelince sevindi . \n He\/she became happy when Ali arrived
advcl(sevindi, gelince)
Okurken uyuyakalmışım . \n I fell asleep while reading
advcl(uyuyakalmışım, Okurken)
Kitabı okusaydın anlardın . \n You would understand if you had read the book
advcl(anlardın, okusaydın)

The subordinator ki and a few other subordinating words may also form adverbial clauses.

Bu kitabı sen de okursun diye aldım \n I bought this book so that you would read it too
advcl(aldım, okursun)
mark(okursun, diye)
Bu kitabı aldım ki sen de okuyasın \n I bought this book so that you would read it too
advcl(aldım, okuyasın)
mark(okuyasın, ki)
Bu kitabı okudun mu herşeyi anlayacaksın \n You will understand everything once you have read this book
advcl(anlayacaksın, okudun)
mark(okudun, mu)
