- Evidential lexical units and constructions and their relation to evidential grammatical markers
- Types of evidentiality: Direct vs. Indirect
- Reported speech and reportative evidentiality
- Epistemic stance and inter/subjectivity in discourse
- Interactional approaches to evidentiality and/or epistemic modality
- Corpus-based studies on evidentiality and/or epistemic modality

An anonymous copy of your abstract (max. 500 words, excl. references), in Word or PDF format, should be submitted via email to: emel14ucm.es. Please include your name, affiliation and contact details in the text of the email message.
