    adverb vs adverbial

    Dear teachers,

    1) What’s the difference bet an Adverb and an Adverbial ?

    2) What is a correlative ?

    3) Is a Superordinate clause the same as a Main clause or Independent clause ?

    Best regards,
    Hela

    Word Class is the difference: The word adverb is a noun, whereas the word adverbial, note the -al ending, is an adjective (e.g., adverbial clause)

    The adjective 'correlative' means, co-relate. A correlative conjunction is either of a pair of coordinating conjunctions used in ordered fashion. Typically, one is used immediately before each member of a pair of constituents e.g, Either you or I; Neither this nor that.

    Matrix Clause
    Although I admire her reasoning, I reject her conclusions.

    Superordinate Clause Also known as the Main Clause
    I reject her conclusions.

    Subordinate Clause
    (3) Although I admire her reasoning

    Note that, Some grammars use the term Main Clause/Independent Clause to refer to the Superordinate Clause (i.e., I reject her conclusions.
