Abstract An adverbial in a sentence in some cases can be or cannot be the focus of a question. Some adverbials ending in -ly, for example the word slowly, are normally inquired by the question word how. Furthermore, the adverbial yesterday can be asked by the question word when. On the other hand, the adverbial frankly speaking, in the following instance: Frankly speaking, he is not responsible for the admission test. cannot be inquired by any question word. In addition, the adverbial probably, in the sentence: They are probably at home. cannot be the focus of any question word. The first kind of adverbial in the above mentioned instances is integrated in the clause structure while the second tends to be peripheral to it (Quirk, 1985:440). That is to say that the second type of adverbial at a certain degree has fewer grammatical functions. This is due to the presence or absence of the adverbial sometimes does not affect the clause structure. Therefore, the second type of adverbial tends to function semantically rather than grammatically. In other word the presence of the adverbial may relate to the sentence, that precedes it or that comes after it. In this perspective, the writer tries to describe different adverbials to the paragraph development, which employs some tools to maintain coherency.
