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
semantics-syntax interface more generally. It will be of central interest to
linguists and philosophers of language of all theoretical persuasions.
