The development of logics of truth and syntactic modality is a recent phenomenon. Various logicians have developed semantic theories of truth that seek to come to terms with the constraints imposed by the semantic and logical by: Main Truth, Syntax and Modality: Proceedings of the Temple University Conference on Alternative Semantics.

This article deals with modal verbs in cognitive linguistics and discusses polysemy versus monosemy, metaphor, metonymy, minimal shifts/partial sanctioning, root modality and epistemic modality Author: Tanja Mortelmans.

This new edition of Syntax: A functional-typological introduction is at many points radically revised. In the previous edition () the author deliberately chose to de-emphasize the more formal aspects of syntactic structure, in favor of a more comprehensive treatment of the semantic and pragmatic correlates of syntactic structure. With hindsight the author now finds the de-emphasis of the 5/5(1). About this book Time and Modality is a unique work of reference; not only does it unite studies which explore the syntax and semantics of tense or modality but it is the first book of its kind to embrace the interaction of tense and modality within a coherent generative model. It uses a case-study, modality, in order to illustrate how the plasticity of lexically conveyed information can be accounted for without assuming semantic polysemy. The author's approach to the semantics and pragmatics of the English modal verbs is developed within the relevance-theoretic framework of Cited by: Mood and Modality in English.
