SALGADO, Janaína Lopes. Discursive modal adverbs, evaluative comment adverbs or modal words?: a comparative study on the grammatical descriptions of the lexical item "adverb" in portuguese and german. Pandaemonium ger. [online]. 2012, vol.15, n.19, pp.154-184. ISSN 1982-8837.

The aim of this article is to present contrastively the different types of grammatical categorization of the lexical item adverb in a Brazilian and in two German grammars. It points out the complexity of describing the adverb as a unique grammatical class due to its heterogeneous nature. Three types of grammatical categorization were chosen to illustrate this complexity: discursive modal adverbs (CASTILHO 2010), comment adverbs (DUDEN 2006) and modal words (HELBIG & BUSCHA 2001).

Keywords : Grammar; Word Classes; Classification; Adverbs; Modal Words.
