Book Information

   

Title: Conditionals and Predictions
Written By: Barbara Dancygier
Series Title: Cambridge Studies in Linguistics 87
Description:

This book offers a new and in-depth analysis of English conditional
sentences. Dancygier classifies conditional constructions according to
time-reference and modality. She shows how the basic meaning parameters of
conditionality correlate to formal parameters of the linguistic
constructions that are used to express them. Focused on English, the study
also provides a framework that can be extended to a broad range of
grammatical phenomena in many other languages.
