Notes on Contributors
This volume comprises fourteen chapters, each addressing a specific issue in the area of modality in English. Following Frank Palmer’s work, modality is taken as a broad, notional area that may involve various kinds of linguistic expressions. From a typological point of view, different modal categories are available in different grammars; moreover, these may be put to different uses by different language users.
Thus, the study of modality is not restricted to the study of particular items like the modal auxiliaries in English or the inflectional moods of the classical languages; it concerns lexical categories which also contribute to modal interpretations and it is further not restricted to sentential semantics only; obviously, modality interacts with contextual factors in important ways. The chapters in this book are indeed indicative of the great number of factors involved in the expression of modal meanings.
The fourteen chapters are grouped into three sections according to the major emphasis each gives on any one of the following three topics: in Section 1, the emphasis is on general issues concerning the semantics-pragmatics interface. Indeed, the papers by Marín-Arrese, Facchinetti, and Degani/Adami/Belladelli address a number of issues involved in the definition of (inter)subjectivity, thus challenging some of the most fundamental assumptions drawn in terms of the traditional semantics-pragmatics dichotomy; Wärnsby’s and Hoye’s chapters discuss the interaction of modality with other elements present in the pragmatics context.
The next four chapters deal with particular questions in the interaction of modal features and other grammatical categories, contrasting a number of particular constructions in English with their counterparts in various other languages (Hogeweg), such as Brazilian Portuguese (Salles), Classical Greek (Willmott) and Spanish (Zamorano/Carretero).
In Section 3, three chapters discuss the details of particular constructions in English, namely ‘epistemic’ must (de Haan), could + perfect infinitive (Depraetere), and the verb want (Bourdin); the typological relevance of modality is analyzed in terms of its translatability across languages (Manika) and in view of cross-linguistically attested grammaticalization processes (Van Olmen/Mortelmaans).
Some of these chapters originated as papers presented at the 3rd International Conference on Modality in English, held in Thessaloniki, 4-6 May 2007. Others have been solicited as highly relevant to a volume which is meant to both justify and celebrate the recent advances in what had originally appeared to be a minor area of grammar, perhaps relevant only to languages that resembled English. Clearly, one of the people responsible for this ‘change of heart’ is Frank Palmer.
