This book presents a typology of subordination systems across the world's languages. Traditional definitions of subordination are based on morphosyntactic criteria, such as clausal embedding or non-finiteness. The book shows that these definitions are untenable in a cross-linguistic perspective, and provides a cognitively based definition of subordination. When an adverbial modifies a verb, it changes the meaning of that verb. For example: The students looked at me. The students looked at me anxiously. (The verb looked suddenly has a very different meaning). When an adverbial modifies a sentence, the meaning of the sentence changes. For example: I passed all of my exams.

This book presents a detailed corpus-based study of adverbial subordinate clauses in English within the framework of the theory of Functional Grammar.

On the basis of an in-depth data analysis, this study shows that there is a systematic correlation between the semantic types of adverbial clauses, on the one hand, and the verb forms by means of which these constructions are expressed in.

It can be simple, complex, or compound. These basics are important, as when we talk about the subordination definition, grammar refers us to the subordinate clause, which is a part of a compound sentence. Adverbial clauses are introduced by special words called subordinating conjunctions.

Subordinating conjunctions link adverb clauses with the word in the independent clause that the adverb clause is modifying. Um, did I lose you there. That sounded really complex.

I'm sorry about that. Let's look at another example. My mom smiled when I made dinner. Grammatically, subordinate adverbial clauses function within sentences as adverbs.

Just as most adjective clauses begin with a relative pronoun, adverb clauses always begin with a subordinating conjunction (after, before, unless, although, when, while, as soon as, as long as, as if, where etc) marking them as grammatically subordinate.
