MetadataShow full item record
The paper focuses on the epistemic use of modal sentence adverbs of certainty in English and Bulgarian. The analysis explores their grammatical and semantic characteristics through the cognitive theoretical frameworks of Jan Nuyts as well as Radden and Dirven. The analysis is further extended to establishing patterns of similarity and variation of usage via a corpus of examples excerpted from English and Bulgarian sources.
