Re: Linguist 12.2075

 Sometime back I had sent a posting to the LINGUIST, asking for
 literature on Mood and Modality, which give a syntactico-semantic
analysis of the subject. Following persons replied

 Ressy ai <raiuci.edu>
 1) Palmer (1986): ("Mood and Modality". Cambridge: Cambridge University
 Press.)
 2) Her proposal for this subject for the summer fellowship in UCI
 (University of California, Irvine.)

 Ken Hughes
 hughesunixg.ubc.ca

 He did a thesis a few years back which argues for a "bi-clausal"
analysis
 of modal auxiliary verbs, and discusses a range of issues such as:

 o semantic emptiness and the pivotal role of infinitival TO w.r.t.
 non-finite (i.e. tenseless) nested propositions, including a survey
 of the range of the types of modality in English (following Palmer);

 o some brief address to using Husserl's transcendental phenemenology
 for a constrained version of intentionality to address some of
 the semantic issues.

 He sent the addresses of the following websites :
 1) A summary and pdf doc at
 http://www.educ.ubc.ca/courses/hughes

 2)A brief paper that was accepted for the current Verona Conference on
 Modality at
 http://www.interchange.ubc.ca/hughes/hughesVerona.pdf

 Thank you very much.
 
Ken Hughes web addresses turned out to be most valuable, because I was able
to download his thesis and the papers from there. Palmer's book I already
have. I couldnot get the papers of Chunmin Lee.
Some people wanted me to pass on the literature that I receive.
Unfortunately I can't, since I didnot get them. If I do, I will,
for sure.
If some more web addresses can be suggested, so that I can download
from there, I'll be really grateful.

 Thanx in advance .
