Overview

The book is a comprehensive study of the evidential system in German. It focuses on the constructions scheinen ´;seem´, drohen ´;threaten´, versprechen ´;promise´ + zu-infinitive,and werden ´;become´ + infinitive. The main idea is that with the diachronic development of these constructions we are witnessing the genesis of a new grammatical category in German.
