Abstract:

In this book modality and its learner variety in Japanese are investigated from 
the perspective of grammaticalization in the functional framework. It 
describes the grammatical system of modality in Japanese in terms of the 
form-function relationship within the scope of a framework based on the 
European school of modality. Accordingly, it deals with the modal system 
and its constituents in Japanese, accommodating all the grammatical means 
of modariti (modality) in the Nihongo bunpou (Japanese grammar system). 
This study also casts light on the learner variety of modality, which is 
comprised of two core systems, epistemic and deontic, both of which are 
evident at the utterance level and the morphosyntactic level. The learner 
variety of modality elucidated here is presented as a proto-modality, which is 
viewed as a system in its own right rather than as an improvised or distorted 
version of the native modal system in Japanese. 

Contents: Functional linguistic approach - Notion of modality - Various 
formulations of modality in linguistics - Modality as a grammatical category - 
Crosscurrent trend of modality study in Nihongo bunpou (Japanese grammar) 
- Grammatical system of modality in Japanese from the perspective of 
synchronic grammaticalisation - Second language acquisition theories - 
Functional linguistic approach - Concept of learner variety - Process of 
grammaticalisation - Shape of modal system in the emergent interlanguage of 
Japanese - Learner variety of modality in Japanese.
