Title: Mood in the Languages of Europe
Edited By: Björn Rothstein
Rolf Thieroff
URL: http://www.benjamins.com/cgi-bin/t_bookview.cgi?bookid=SLCS%20120
Series Title: Studies in Language Companion Series 120
Description:

This book is the first comprehensive survey of mood in the languages of
Europe. It gives readers access to a collection of data on mood. Each
article presents the mood system of a specific European language in a way
that readers not familiar with this language are able to understand and to
interpret the data. The articles contain information on the morphology and
semantics of the mood system, the possible combinations of tense and mood
morphology, and the possible uses of the non-indica­tive mood(s). The
papers address the explanation of mood from an empirical and descriptive
perspective. This book is of interest to scholars of mood and modality,
language contact, and areal linguistics and typology.
