Funktionen der Modalverben im Deutschen und Franzoesischen (Functions of the Modal Verbs in German and French)
Blumenthal, Peter
Linguistik und Didaktik, 7, 25, 41-54, 76
First examines German modal verbs with respect to multiple meanings and synonymy, finding that "implications," especially presuppositions, account for important differences in their uses. The same approach is used on French modals. Common features and differences are studied, and typical errors are predicted and classified. (Text is in German.) (IFS/WGA)
