Our main interest is in contributions that show how modal expressions contribute to inferences about, among other things, what is actual, likely or unlikely, what an agent believes or prefers, or what the obligations in a given situation are.

We envision three major parts for the volume, corresponding to the broad categories below:

and newspapers, where the standard, literary language is used.

Apart from those official languages, a large number of dialects or closely-related language
