This chapter further elaborates the movement account of adverbial clauses, focusing on temporal and conditional clauses. The chapter is organized as follows. Section 5.2 presents the movement account for temporal clauses. It goes over the arguments advanced in the literature and proposes an implementation according to which temporal clauses are free relatives. It also highlights some comparative data in support of the analysis. Section 5.3 shows how the movement account extends to conditional clauses and derives the absence of speaker-oriented modal expressions in conditional clauses. Section 5.4 discusses the distribution of speaker-oriented modal expressions in temporal clauses, and Section 5.5 discusses the distribution of French stylistic inversion in adverbial clauses.

Keywords:   adverbial clauses, temporal clauses, conditional clauses, model expressions, French stylistic inversion
