Meeting Description:

Modality Workshop OttawaU

The aim of the workshop is to bring together exciting contemporary research on linguistic issues surrounding modality. Modality, traditionally a central topic in semantics, has undergone a recent revival in the literature. There is much current interest in modal topics, ranging from questions with philosophical flavors, such as ontology and logic, to questions addressing syntax, morphology, and the structural issues associated with modal interpretations, links to tense and aspect, new insights arising from data from little-studied languages, typological questions, links to discourse and pragmatics, and the role of subjectivity in the evaluation of modal expressions. The aim of this workshop is to bring together exciting research representative of current interests in modality, both in traditional as well as recent areas of study.
