Abstract:

This volume on subjectification and modalization sheds new light on two
kinds of shifts: (i) the shift from originally lexical reading toward
propositional or procedural ones and (ii) the shift from direct speech to
various forms of indirect speech. The papers of this volume not only
corroborate many of the assumptions and hypotheses on semantic and
syntactic change made in the literature, but also uncover the underlying
principles that motivate these processes. Five papers discuss the patterns
lying behind the grammaticalization and subjectification of adverbs and
verbs. Three papers dwell on different ways of reporting or distancing the
speaker's own or someone else's discourse and address the issue of how the
speaker can make use of tense to modalize the proposition.
