Hierarchical clause structure is an important feature of most theories of
grammar. While it has been an indispensable part of formal syntactic
theories, functional theories have more recently discovered for themselves
a 'layered structure of the clause'. A major focus of the current
discussion on semanto-syntactic clause structure is the hierarchical
ordering of grammatical categories such as tense, aspect and modality.
However, there are very few empirical studies yet to provide systematic
evidence for presumably universal hierarchical structures. This book
presents a systematic corpus-based study of the semantic and
morphosyntactic interaction of modality with tense, aspect, negation, and
modal markers embedded in subordinate clauses. The results are critically
compared with extant theories of hierarchies of grammatical categories,
including those in Functional Grammar, Role and Reference Grammar, and the
Cartography of Syntactic Structures. Also provided is an extensive
description of the expression of modality and related categories in Modern
