This paper builds on the investigation of Malayalam Conjunctive Participle Constructions in Swenson (2016a). The main conclusion in Swenson (2016a) was that Malayalam Conjunctive Participles are semantically underspecified for tense and viewpoint aspect and also structurally small. This paper provides further support for this position. It shows, however, that the Stump (1985) based adjunct account proposed in Swenson (2016a), must be modified to capture certain facts about the compatibility of Conjunctive Participles Constructions with Individual Level Predicates and multiple adverbs in Malayalam.
