b) adjective + that clause – e.g. I?m sure that?
c) adj + to infinitive – e.g. He was hard to wait

gradation

b) comparative

– we can’t grade words which already express the highest degree of property or absolute feature – e.g. blind, dead, deaf
– 2 kinds:
a) inflectional – using suffixes -er + -est
b) periphrastic/analytical – more + most

Adverbs
a) sentential adverbs – e.g. naturally – precedes verb or at the very end
b) temporary – e.g. often – all adverbs of frequency
c) verbal /manner – e.g. quickly – must be close to verb
d) grading – e.g. very – premodifiers

syntactically can be:
1. complements – are internal to the verb phrase
2. adjuncts – external with respect to verb + complement, we can ask WH-questions
3. disjuncts – adding an info that is not essential, expressing the speakers attitude towards – e.g. fortunately
4. conjuncts – adds info to the sentence that is not considered to be part of the context, links segments together, e.g. however
