Modification of PP
quickinfo

Adjectives and adverbs may modify Adposition Phrases (PPs), provided that their meaning belongs to the same semantic category as the PPs which they are intended to modify. Two semantic categories are distinguished. In addition, the comparative and superlative of semantically compatible adjectives may be used to form the comparative and superlative forms of PPs: PPs of location, PPs of time or using adjectives and adverbs for the comparative and superlative forms of PPs.
