 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. I got two more replies.

 1) From: Andrew Winnard <>,

 The second edition of Frank Palmer's Mood and Modality was published
 earlier this year. It's ISBN is 0521804795. You can find it on our web
 catalogue .

 2) John Mullen<>

 A book, which for some reason is not in Palmer's bibliography and
 doesn't seem to be well known outside France, is nevertheless considered
 in France as the master work on the subject.

 Le possible et le n�cessaire - modalit�s et auxiliaires modaux en
 anglais britannique Paul Larreya--Nathan Recherche 1984, Paris ISBN 2 09
 190103 2

 It's almost four hundred pages long, and, in my opinion, absolutely
 indispensable. Even if you don't read French, it would be worth getting
 a friend to read it for you!

 Thanks once again.
