The soldier lay low to the ground.

Question 1: In 'the soldier lay low to the ground,' the adverbial phrase 'low to the ground' is an adjunct, right?

Question 2: In 'the soldier lay low to the ground,' we also call 'low to the ground' an adverb of manner, right?

Maggie, you currently have questions about this sentence in several other threads:

http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169301_Do-these-two-analyses-make-sense-.aspx
http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169356_which-Q-A-is-suitable-for-this-sentence--The-soldier-lay-low-to-the-ground--.aspx
http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169342_Do-these--Q-A-s-both-make-sense--If-not--could-you-tell-me-how-to-express-them-correctly-.aspx

It can get quite confusing when one is formulating a response and trying to follow what you have already been told, especially as you have threads on similar structures:

http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169341_The-house-lay-low-to-the-ground-.aspx
http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169358_He-felt-alone-in-the-world-.aspx
http://forum.thefreedictionary.com/postst169302_Which-one-is-natural-to-native-speakers-.aspx

You might consider asking follow-up questions in one thread in future, rather than posting variations on a theme in separate threads. This will make it much easier for us to avoid repetition and to avoid apparently contradicting what you have been told in another thread.
