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.

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