    You might need to give us a sentence with both in it, so we can agree on what is meant by an attribute and an adverbial modifier.
    "Her hair is bright red." "Red" is an attribute (usually described as an adjective) of her hair; "bright" is an adverb that modifies "red". Is that what you mean?
