Abstract:
			
In this innovative study, Professor Narahara offers a
multi-disciplinary description of the Japanese copula, revealing it to
be at the interface of morphology, syntax, semantics and
pragmatics. Most striking is her discovery of the copula's function to
express the speaker's knowledge or ignorance about the proposition of
the sentence. She provides a new morphological feature analysis to
derive this modal function and further proposes a series of unified
accounts for a wide range of discourse phenomena.
