Title: Mood and Modality
Written By: R. F. Palmer
URL: http://us.cambridge.org/titles/catalogue.asp?isbn=0521800358
Series Title: Cambridge Textbooks in Linguistics
Description:

Since the publication of F. R. Palmer's first edition of Mood and Modality
in 1986, when the topic of 'modality' was fairly unfamiliar, there has
been considerable interest in the subject as well as in grammatical
typology in general. Modality is concerned with mood (subjunctive etc.) and
with modal markers such as English modal verbs (can, may, must etc.) and is
treated as a single grammatical category found in most of the languages of
the world. In his investigation of this category, Palmer draws on a wealth
of examples from a wide variety of languages. He discusses in detail
familiar features in a number of mainly European languages, and also looks
at less familiar features including 'evidential' systems and the contrast
of realis/irrealis, both to be found in unrelated languages.
