原始语种摘要: Abstract The paper presents an analysis of the Afrikaans degree modifier baie ‘very/much/many’. Baie appears to be a single lexical item with a wide distribution in terms of the categories of gradablepredicate with which it can combine. However, the paper shows that two syntactically distinct instances of baie should be distinguished. These instances of baie portion out the modification of different grammatical categoriesbetween them: one, a head, exclusively modifies gradable adjectives, and the other, an adjunct, modifies the remaining categoriesof gradable predicate.
