This book presents a selection of contributions to the workshop "Linguistic
realization of evidentiality in European languages", held at the 30th
Annual Convention of the German Society of Linguistics in Bamberg (February
27-29, 2008), and additional papers, which have been especially
commissioned for this volume. Its main focus lies on providing further
empirical evidence about languages that have various - lexical as well as
grammatical - evidential expressions.
The papers in this volume will offer a cross-linguistic perspective on this
topic as they deal with a number of different language families and
languages: Romance languages (French, Spanish, Italian), Germanic languages
(Dutch, German, English, Icelandic), Baltic and Slavic languages, Greek,
Basque, and Turkish.
