Abstract:

Can an author's preference for expressing modality be quantified and then usedas a marker of attribution? This book explores the possibility of using thesubjunctive mood as an indicator of style and a marker of authorship in EarlyModern English texts. Using three works by the sixteenth-century biblicaltranslator and polemicist, William Tyndale, Elizabeth Bell Canon establishes apredictable preference for certain types of modal expression. The theory ofsubjunctive use as a marker of attribution was then tested on the anonymous1533 English translation of Erasmus' Enchiridion Militis Christiani. Also includedin this book is a modern English spelling version Tyndale's The Parable of theWicked Mammon.

The Author: Elizabeth Bell Canon holds a Ph.D. in linguistics from theUniversity of Georgia. She is currently Assistant Professor of Linguistics at theUniversity of Wisconsin at La Crosse.
