Abstract

Generally absolute participial constructions (APC) are considered to represent two distinct types according to their interpretation either as (a) a secondary predication expressing a possessive relation with an argument in the main clause and denoting manner (Mouret, 2011:51) or as (b) parphrasing an adverbial subordinate clause. We examine absolute participial constructions of type (b) and compare their properties with those of adverbial subrodinate clauses (AS) by discussing three characteristics: 1. semantic constaints in the interpretation of the connected predications; 2. types of connection between the predications; 3. the characteristics of syntactic relations between the predications. Our objective is to specify the semantico-syntactic relations implemented by the two constructions (APC and AS).
