Definition:

Phrase is the class of syntactic constructions that consist of one or more syntactic words, but lack the subject-predicate organization of a clause. Phrases get their grammatical characteristics according to what word occupies the head position; thus, all phrases have heads. [Crystal 1980: 232-233; Pei and Gaynor 1954: 169; Pike and Pike 1982: 453]

Status: Pending Why no AdverbialPhrase? - Evelyn Richter

I know that some scholars do not believe adverbs & adjectives as separate POS, but GOLD seems to see a distinction between the two since there is Adjectival and Adverbial in the Part of Speech Property section.

So why is there no AdverbialPhrase? And if there is no AdverbialPhrase concept on purpose, how would a mapping to something annotated as AdverbialPhrase work? Would it be mapped to Adverbial and Phrase or AdjectivePhrase or all three of these concepts?

AdverbialPhrase is annotated in the TIGER Corpus for instance.
