Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In a response to Ferdinand de Haan's "Building a Semantic Map: Top-Down versus Bottom-Up Approaches" (2010), Narrog clarifies a number of issues in the paper. The question of how to categorize such modal markers as the English must in Indo-European languages lies at the heart of the evidentiality versus epistemic modality discussion, and this issue is a central concern in Narrog's response.
