In the process of C-E translation, the translator tries to motivate himself or herself pragmatically as the original author is. For the positional shift of a modifier, these pragmatic concerns are concretized on the part of the author as three pairs of practical functions: perpetuity and temporariness, intentionality and unintentionality, subjectivity and objectivity.
