Book Information


Title: Discourse Modality. Subjectivity, Emotion and Voice in the Japanese Language
Written By: Senko K. Maynard
Description:

Focusing on non-propositional, i.e. the expressive and interactional, meanings of Japanese signs, with special emphasis on understanding their cognitive, psychological and social meanings, this study shows Japanese to be richly featured for the expression of personal voice and emotive nuances and confronts the theoretical issues underlying this richness.
