Title: Funktionen von Modalität [Functions of Modality]
Edited By: Werner Abraham

URL: http://www.degruyter.com/view/product/210901?format=G
Series Title: De Gruyter Linguistik - Impulse & Tendenzen 55
Description:

The term “modality” encompasses a number of categories: modal verbs, modal particles, and confirmatory questions. This volume examines, on the one hand, the common features of basic modal and epistemic versions of modal verbs, and, on the other, modal particles. What level of certainty do words of this kind communicate to the listener? This is the key question posed by the work.
