 bible.org: The Validity of Adverbial Participles in Oblique Cases
The adverbial participle modifying the infinitive is expected to be in the predicate position since it is adverbial.
It seems unlikely that this structural criterion would serve to indicate an adverbial usage of the participle only when the participle is in the nominative or genitive case and all of a sudden become meaningless when refering to accusative or dative participles.
He further explains that, “Adverbial participles are semantically linked to the action of the main verb, which will generally be the most prominent part of a clause, since it is crucial for the presentation of new information.

 Aristotle -- Motion and its Place in Nature [Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy]
It is true that this particular feminine relative pronoun often had an adverbial sense to which its gender was irrelevant, but in the three statements of the definition of motion there is no verb but estin.
Thomas' account of the meaning of Aristotle's definition forces him to construe the grammar of the definition in such a way that the clause introduced by the dative singular feminine relative pronoun he has as its antecedent, in two cases, the neuter participle tou ontos, and in the third, the neuter substantive adjective tou dunatou.
If the clause is understood adverbially, then, the sentence must mean something like: if motion is a potentiality, it is the actuality of a potentiality.

 Filologia 8 (1995) Scot SNYDER
A closer examination reveals that this participle ought to be understood as adverbial, not commanding.
The thesis of L. Thurén that the author of 1 Peter used the participles under discussion in a purposefully vague manner (a "textual strategy") to cause both semantical and theological ambivalence is unconvincing.
By this, it is meant that a participle which occurs in close proximity to a main verb and could easily modify that verb, without distorting the sense of the argument, is probably not best considered a commanding participle.

he part of the verb that remains in the reduced subordinate clause is the nonfinite constituent, the participle, the verb that is not marked for tense.
The subordinate structure takes on the grammatical function of subject, object, complement, or adverbial in the main clause.
Noun phrases, remember, can function as subject, object, complement, or even occasionally as adverbial.

AVP is an abbreviation for `adverbial participle' a form of the verb that is essentially its past stem minus person-number-gender (PNG) markers; it expresses in ordinary syntax the notion that some verbal action preceded another verbal action, that expressed by the next verb in the sentence.
A sentence may have only one finite verb; all other verb must be non-finite, such as the adverbial participle, the infinitive, or some other.
Annamalai refers to this verb as `ego-benefactive.' Many of the examples of aspect (which he refers to as verbal extension), are taken from his 1985 book on the subject.

Nuntium, although not in the ablative case, is considered part of the AA phrase because it is direct object of the active participle.
The ablative absolute is sometimes called an adverbial phrase because it modifies the whole sentence as an adverb modifies the action of a verb.
We use absolute adverbial phrases in English too: 'They had a pleasant trip, all things considered.'

 Gerunds and the progressive tenses in Spanish
The gerund is a verb form which has an adverbial function,not an adjectival function like a participle, nor a noun function like an infinitive.
The gerund is primarily used: with estar to form the progressive tenses; with verbs of motion and seguir / continuar ; to introduce an adverbial phrase or express “by (do)-ing (something)”.
The gerund is a verb form with an adverbial function; do not use it as a noun.

 Verb Tenses
Present perfect tense describes an action that happened at an indefinite time in the past or that began in the past and continues in the present.This tense is formed by using has/have with the past participle of the verb.
This tense is formed by using has/have been and the present participle of the verb (the verb form ending in -ing).
We can also use the present tense form with an adverb or adverbial phrase to show future time.

On the other hand, a modifier that refers to the manner in which the action of the verb was done or what instrument or means were used to perform the action are always adverbials of the verb.
On the other hand, the most important adverbial modifiers are those which refer to the entire clause, for they relate information about causes, reasons, purposes, conditions, times, places and the truth of the events referred to by the sentence as a whole.
Gerunds are most often confused with the present participle used as a modifier.

The earlier type of word order in (plu)perfect verb phrases in main clauses seems to have been the one with sentence brace, where we have a finite verb earlier in the clause and a non-finite verb or adverbial particle at the end.
Whether we can say that with the loss of participle inflection and the adjacency of the elements of the verb phrase we already have a fully grammaticalised (plu)perfect which can, for instance, be used in variation with the simple past, is a question I shall have to address in my own research.
The first area I am going to study is thus the rise of the perfect and pluperfect forms formed with habban + a lexical past participle.

Modern system of noun declension (with alternating particles i/ka for the subject case, dative case ending “ege”, etc.) and tense-indication system (past tense as adverbial participle ending and the verb “to be”) also formed at that period.
Particles, which agglutinate one after another, can function as grammatical markers (case markers, connectives, etc.), and also express such socio-linguistic categories as “levels of speech” (which depend on relative social positions of the speaker and hearer).
Basically, grammatical particles are added to nominal and verbal stems in derivation and inflection.

 Split infinitive - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A split infinitive is a grammatical construction in the English language where a word or phrase, usually an adverb or adverbial phrase, occurs between the marker to and the bare infinitive (uninflected) form of the verb.
For example, people will contort sentences to avoid placing an adverb in its usual position between the auxiliary verb and the participle, leading to constructions such as, "The argument originally had been used…" instead of "The argument had originally been used", which is more natural for most speakers.
It is speculated that the rule against split infinitives developed around the beginning of the English Renaissance, as English grammarians, trained to look to Ancient Greek and Latin as ideal languages, took a closer look at their own mother tongue.

Kellog (1893) in fact maintains that the main verb in complex predicates is not in the stem form, though it may look identical on the surface, but that it is formed with a now null conjunctive participle.
In both Bengali and Urdu/Hindi a complex predicate and adverbial participial reading exist side by side in the synchronic grammars for the same V-V sequence.
Whether we assume a null morpheme, or simply acknowledge the loss of the morphology is ultimately neither here nor there, and I take the question of the Urdu loss up again in section 3.4.

The object predicative complement and the infinitive of the object with infinitive construction share a position, followed by a field for bound content adverbials (Han bor i Lund ‘he lives in Lund’) and prepositional objects (Han ser på henne ‘he is looking at her’).
When the predicative complement is an adjective or a past participle, it agrees with the word it is a complement to (subject or object) in number and gender:

A particularly interesting derivational phenomenon is the widespread use of relational adjectives and also the use of a so-called 'participle' form derived from nouns, adjectives, or verbs with a variety of functions.
Adverbial clauses, sentential complements and relative clauses can be expressed either as a finite clause introduced by a complementizer, or by using various gerundive and participial constructions.
The language tends to mark voice and aspectual nuances on verbs and has a rich set of denominal word formation affixes.

 The Ablative Case
The ablative absolute is an adverbial modifier of the verbal predicate of a sentence.
Specifically in this construction, a noun or pronoun and a past participle are put into the ablative case to show in what circumstances or time the action of a finite verb takes place.
Ablative absolutes were originally ablatives of accompaniment indicating the attendant circumstances.

It consists of a noun or pronoun in the ablative case with a participle agreeing with it.
The ablative case signifies that a noun is either the object of a preposition that takes the ablative case, or is being used in one of several adverbial usages which students of Latin must simply learn.
Nouns in the accusative case will be the direct object of a preposition, the direct object of a verb, or the subject of an infinitive in indirect statement.
