Modality in Taiwanese.
Cheng, Robert L.
Journal of the Chinese Language Teachers Association, v15 n2 p45-93 May 1980
Divides Taiwanese modals into: (1) authority, where a deep structure agent exercises authority; (2) contigency, which concerns the speaker's judgment of the possibility or logical necessity df the occurrence of an event; and (3) volition, which expresses the subject's desires. The constructions in which these modals appear are examined. (PJM)
