The Realization of Time Adjuncts in Albanian and English Language


  • Shpend Ademi State University of Tetova. English Department.


This research paper is based on the comparative approach of English and Albanian language as far as the realization of time adjuncts is concerned. The main focus would be especially directed toward the differences and similarities between the realizations of time adjuncts in both languages according to semantic subtypes of time adjuncts since the structure with which these time adjuncts are realized in great account depends on
their semantic subtypes. In some cases, there is a clear line of differences between these two languages. Both languages use different grammatical tools for these adjuncts. In some cases it is not just the syntactic structure that differs but also the semantic type is understood differently. The comparative method is the main research method used in this paper since the nature of such research requires for this material to be compared in order to highlight the differences as well as the commonalities that would eventually appear between these two languages. The descriptive
method is also used to describe the language phenomenon which is the subject of this research. The description of grammatical units in this paper is based on accordance with the modern world grammarians. The survey method is another form of research that helped to classify, compare and analyze the material, thus coming to a conclusion. The differences, as well as the commonalities that came out of this paper, gives as a strong believe that the syntactic forms and structures achieved in one language through specific grammar tools can be reached by other grammar tools
in the other language.

Keywords: time adjunct, realization, phrase, syntagm, syntactic structure.
