Item description for Discourse Modality (Pragmatics & Beyond,) by Senko K. Maynard...
This study focuses on non-propositional (that is, expressive and interactional) meanings of Japanese signs, with special emphasis on understanding their cognitive, psychological and social meanings. It shows how the Japanese language is richly endowed to express personal voice and emotive nuances, and confronts the theoretical issues related to this. The author proposes a new theoretical framework for discourse modality, a primary concern for Japanese speakers, to analyze the "expressiveness" of language.
