A COGNITIVE APPROACH TO EPISTEMIC MARKERS OF LOGICAL NECESSITY, PROBABILITY, AND PREDICTABILITY IN ENGLISH AND BULGARIAN. SIMILARITY AND VARIATION OF USAGE IN DAN BROWN’S „ANGELS AND DEMONS“ AND ITS TRANSLATION INTO BULGARIAN
MetadataShow full item record
The object of study in the present paper is epistemic modality, expressed through paradigms of modal verbs, modal adverbs, modal predicative adjectives, and mental state predicates. The linguistic units are analysed from CognitivePragmatic Perspective both in English and Bulgarian. The corpus of examples is based on Dan Brown’s „Angels and Demons“ and the Bulgarian translation by Krum Buchvarov, 2003. The aim is not to discuss the merits or the drawbacks of the translation, but rather to discuss the epistemic patterns, establishing similarities or variations in the usage of the epistemic markers.
