Abstract: The aim of this paper is to show that the placement of adverbs is a crucial criterion for identifying the positions of arguments and verb(s) in the domain of the clause referred to as the Mittelfeld. This domain is situated between the complementizer system (CP) and the VP-shell. We propose that the Mittelfeld be constituted of Cinque‟s (1999) adverb-related projections in addition to argument and verb-related projections. More precisely, recursive chunks of A-positions are potentially available between the adverb-related functional projections. It will be assumed that the chunks are recursive SVO structures, as required by the Strict Cyclicity on the basis of Kayne‟s (1994) antisymmetry theory (SVO order within the VP-shell).
