Linguistics scholars based in Europe and the UK, the US, and Australia address various facets of core modality, peripheral modality, and evidentiality and modality in discourse. Fourteen contributions address striving for control, mapping the impact of "genre" in spoken British English, a comparison of grammatical colloquialism and the English quasi-modals, a semantic-pragmatic map of English adverbs, and modal verbs in news-related blogs, among other topics.
