Abstract:

This book is the first collection of studies on Japanese modality written
in English. It presents a review of Japanese modality studies as well as
important new material that addresses the issues of its scope, its nature,
and its conceptualization. The book offers specialists of Japanese a
valuable tool to explore the broad range of perspectives adopted in a long
tradition of scholarly inquiry on the subject, such as syntax, semantics,
pragmatics, SLA, interaction analysis, in synchronic and diachronic, and
comparative approaches. Through the study of its instantiation in the
Japanese language, the volume raises the ontological question of what
modality is and is not, and to what extent research tagged under the same
nominal category refers to commensurate phenomena in other languages. This
question is relevant to all linguistic research, and this collection of
studies on modariti offers a stimulating contrast to existing studies on
Western languages.
