The Expression of Modality in English and Russian: A Contrastive Analysis
Croft, Lee B.
Russian Language Journal, 29, 104, 5-24, Aut 75
Establishes the considerations of factivity, or concern with truth-value, and fictivity, or concern with realizational status, as basic to the concept of modality. This makes possible the inclusion of factive and implicative verbs in the concept of modality, and clarifies semantic differences between the Russian and English modal auxiliary systems. (CLK)
