Basque manner adverbs and their genesis

This article has a twofold aim. First, it incorporates a concise, yet fairly complete, discussion of manner adverbs occurring in the present literary standard form of the Basque language. No semantic analysis of any profundity will be offered, the emphasis being rather on quite superficial morphology. Despite its modest scope, this part of the article may be particularly welcome to teachers of the language and their students, both within Euskadi and abroad.
   At the same time I would like this essay to be a contribution to diachronic morphology. To this end, sections have been included providing a historical background relating to the various suffixes that derive adverbs from adjectives.
