Abstract

In this paper the author proves that the meaning of purpose always contains a neutralized causal meaning, which is corroborated by prepositional phrases with the syntactic function of adverbial of purpose. On the complex sentence level the author suggests shifts in the comprehension of the same meaning – that of purpose – especially regarding the choice of tense in the subordinate purpose clause.
