Jost Gippert: Our Featured Linguist!

"Buenos dias", "buenas noches" -- this was the first words in a foreign language I heard in my life, as a three-year old boy growing up in developing post-war Western Germany, where the first gastarbeiters had arrived from Spain.

Query:   Dear All,

I am looking for literature on Mood and Modality papers which give a
syntactico-semantic analysis of the subject. I'll be extremely
grateful if the relevant papers can be emailed to me by file
attachment, or websites suggested, so that I can download the paper(s)
from there. Or, hard copies can be mailed at the contact address given
below. If you just give me the references, I am afraid, it would not be
of much help, because in India, I won't be able to find the
literature. I'll post the summary of course.

Thanks
