Modality, Corpus, Discourse

Conference URL:

An international conference on usage-based approaches to Epistemic Stance, Subjectivity, Evidentiality, and Perspectivisation- Epistemic modality is one of the most complex linguistic phenomena. Its expression bridges and integrates lexical, morphological, syntactic, prosodic, and discursive structures in language. Both corpus linguistics and discourse analysis share the same goals and assumptions in language description. Both approaches examine natural language in the search for usage patterns, which are assumed to represent language structure. This conference seeks to bring together the two analytical traditions in the effort to describe and explain the complexity of epistemic modality.
