adverb - A word that modifies a verb, adjective, other adverbs, or various other types of words, phrases, or clauses.

What does this term modify? It is obviously a NP. Also, is it the best canonical form for this term? with one's tail between one's legs seems more legit. Moreover that would be our desired adverb --Dixtosa-wikified me 12:43, 2 October 2012 (UTC)
