Using the notion of modulator again, we can now insert adjectives into this framework: in this context, they consist of noun modulators (mostly common nouns, but sometimes proper nouns as well). The adjective, as a noun modulator, is placed either before or after the noun.
So we have the following categories:
- modulators of nouns (= adjectives)
- modulators of adjectives
- modulators of verbs, i.e. adverbs in a restrictive but classical sense
- modulators of determinants
