From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Adverbial participles are built out of a verb (mostly with a suffix), and in most cases they play the role of the sentence element called adverbial in the grammar of some languages (Russian [1] and other Slavic languages, Hungarian , many Eskimo languages, e.g. Sireniki [2]). Thus it can usually be translated into English by using an appropriate adverbial clause [3].

Some descriptive grammars treat them as a distinct lexical category, others avoid that and use a more minimalistic approach.[4] Because the above languages have also adjectival participle, the word participle is meant often for both lexical categories [1].
