Truth, Veridicality, and the problem of grammatical mood What this book is about This book is about how the concepts of truth, knowledge and, broadly speaking, belief are reflected in the grammar of natural languages. Does language directly access the world (what is true), or does it do so via semantic representations of the world categories? Visual Rhetoric/Modality and Visual Representations of Reality. From Wikibooks, open books for an open world there are certain qualities that they possess to portray the highest level of truth. This is the modality of the image. “Each realism has its naturalism, that is, a realism is a definition of what counts as real, a set of criteria. modality, does not contribute to truth-conditional content. In this paper I challenge this view. I reanalyze a variety of arguments which have been used in support of the non-truth-conditional view and show that they can be handled on an alternative analysis of epistemic modality.

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.

Modal logic is a type of formal logic primarily developed in the s that extends classical propositional and predicate logic to include operators expressing modality.

The field is considered to be distinct from philosophical logic. Philosophical logic is the branch of study that concerns questions about reference, predication, identity, truth, quantification.
