Sociolinguistics from the Periphery

By Sari Pietikäinen, Alexandra Jaffe, Helen Kelly-Holmes, Nik Coupland

Sociolinguistics from the Periphery "presents a fascinating book about change: shifting political, economic and cultural conditions; ephemeral, sometimes even seasonal, multilingualism; and altered imaginaries for minority and indigenous languages and their users"

Title: Modals and Conditionals
Subtitle: New and Revised Perspectives
Written By: Angelika Kratzer
URL: http://ukcatalogue.oup.com/product/9780199234691.do
Description:

This book contains updated and substantially revised versions of Angelika
Kratzer's classic papers on modals and conditionals, including 'What "must" and
"can" must and can mean', 'Partition and Revision', 'The Notional Category of
Modality', 'Conditionals', 'An Investigation of the Lumps of Thought', and 'Facts:
Particulars or Information Units?'. The book's contents add up to some of the
most important work on modals and conditionals in particular and on the
