Embedded Expansions: Enhancing

Halliday & Matthiessen (2004: 432):
Here the relation between the embedded clause and the Head noun is a circumstantial one of time, place, manner, cause or condition. There are two types, according to where the relationship is construed:
(a) those where the circumstantial sense is located in the embedded clause itself;
(b) those where it is located in the noun functioning as Head.
