Title: In the mood for mood
Written By: Walter De Mulder
Edited By: Tanja Mortelmans
Jesse Mortelmans
URL: http://www.rodopi.nl/senj.asp?BookId=Chronos+23
Series Title: Cahiers Chronos 23
Description:

This volume is a selection of papers presented at the 7th Chronos
colloquium in Antwerp (2006), which deal with the expression of modality
(in a wide sense), by modal and semi-modal verbs (in Germanic and Romance
languages), on the one hand, and by other markers (in languages like
Turkish, Tibetan and Japanese), on the other. The Antwerp edition’s special
conference topic was the interaction between tense and modality, of which
some of the papers collected in this volume also testify. The volume covers
a wide range of languages and topics. Specific topics include: the
distinction between root and epistemic modality and its interaction with
tense and counterfactuality; epistemic deve and dovrebbe in Italian;
semi-modals in German; the interpretation of epistemic past modals in
English and Spanish; the interface between Turkish ‘almost’ adverbs and the
Turkish verbal system; the meaning of epistemic endings in Spoken Standard
Tibetan; Korean ‘evidential’ markers teiru and ta and so-called fake past
sentences in Japanese.
