Title: Evidentiality
Written By: Chia-jung Pan
URL: http://www.oup.com/uk/catalogue/?ci=9780199204335
Description:

This book provides the first exhaustive cross-linguistic typological study
of how languages deal with the marking of information source: in particular
those languages in which every statement must contain a specification of
the type of evidence on which it is based: for example, whether the speaker
saw it, or heard it, or inferred it from indirect evidence, or learnt it
from someone else. Examples are drawn from over 500 languages from all over
the world. This important book on an intriguing subject will interest
anthropologists, cognitive psychologists and philosophers, as well as
linguists.
