We'd like to remind readers that the responses to queries are usually best posted to the individual asking the question. That individual is then strongly encouraged to post a summary to the list. This policy was
instituted to help control the huge volume of mail on LINGUIST; so we would appreciate your cooperating with it whenever it seems appropriate.
In addition to posting a summary, we'd like to remind people that it is usually a good idea to personally thank those individuals who have taken the trouble to respond to the query.
Hello everybody: I've been noticing a double modal-like construction in Canadian English recently, of the ''You are gonna wanna see this''. I know it's also used in American English, but I was wondering whether you might know of any studies that specifically deal with this (new?) double modal. Most studies I know deal with gonna I'd be grateful for any hints for literature, also for ancedotal snippets and evidence.
I'll post a summary.
Thanks a lot, Stefan
