The book presents new issues and areas of work in Modality and Evidentiality in English(es), and in relation to other languages. The volume addresses issues such as the conceptual nature of modality, the relationship between the domains of modality and evidentiality, the evolution and current status of the modal auxiliaries and other modal expressions, the relationship with neighbouring grammatical categories (TAM systems), and the variation in different discourse domains and genres, in modelling stance and discourse identities.
