piñón: speech-act adverbs as manner adverbs



Of the previous approaches reviewed in section 3, the present account is probably closest in spirit to Leech's in spite of the many differences in implementation. Most importantly, though, unlike in Leech's approach, there is no attempt here to derive speech-act adverbs from manner adverbs. Rather, speech-act adverbs simply are special-use manner adverbs.
