Abstract:

This book covers the essentials of modality and offers both foundational
ideas and cutting edge advances. The book consists of what are essentially
tutorials on modality and modal notions, covering definitions of modality,
morphosyntactic form, conceptual and logical semantics, historical
development, and acquisition. There are also specific chapters on modality
in Zapotec and American Sign Language, which show the range of forms that
modal notions can take. To assist its tutorial function, the book closes
with a comprehensive conceptual outline of all the chapters.
