    Abstract

    Modality is a means to express unrealized possibilities, necessities, chances, wishes, intentions, obligations, and so on. In accordance with Bybee & Dahl (1989), in this section the term ‘modality’ refers to the semantic domain. The morphosyntactic realization of modality is discussed in the Morphology section modality [Morphology – Section 3.4].
