Evidentiality is concerned with speakers’ source of information that they mark as evidence for their claims about the actual world. Evidentiality can be expressed in lexically and grammatically various ways. Languages can mark different types of evidentiality, such as inferential evidentiality, related to epistemic modality, and sensory evidentiality, based on perception. Other important types of evidentiality that are particularly important in the context of narration, are reportative and quotative evidentiality. Recent years have witnessed a growing interest in the linguistic field of evidentiality.
Topics to be addressed during this two-day workshop are the various types of evidentiality markers found in the languages of the world, degrees of their grammaticalization, the relation between evidentiality and epistemic modality, and between evidentiality and perception.
