Summary This monograph examines the structure and properties of Finnish manner adverbials. The central idea is that, instead of AdvPs, DPs, APs, PPs, NumPs and InfinitivalPs, manner adverbials have the form of either kPs or pPs, and they are licensed as unique specifiers of a manner-related small vP. Secondly, because "obligatory" and "optional" manner adverbials are merged as specifiers of one and the same small vP, the computational system of language sees no difference between them. This is why "obligatory" and "optional" manner adverbials often behave in exactly the same way with regard to syntact.
