Re: Linguist 12.2075

 Sometime back I had sent a posting to the LINGUIST, asking for
 literature on Mood and Modality, which give a syntactico-semantic
analysis of the subject. Following persons replied

 Ressy ai <>
 1) Palmer (1986): ("Mood and Modality". Cambridge: Cambridge University
 2) Her proposal for this subject for the summer fellowship in UCI
 (University of California, Irvine.)

 Ken Hughes

 He did a thesis a few years back which argues for a "bi-clausal"
 of modal auxiliary verbs, and discusses a range of issues such as:

 o semantic emptiness and the pivotal role of infinitival TO w.r.t.
 non-finite (i.e. tenseless) nested propositions, including a survey
 of the range of the types of modality in English (following Palmer);

 o some brief address to using Husserl's transcendental phenemenology
 for a constrained version of intentionality to address some of
 the semantic issues.

 He sent the addresses of the following websites :
 1) A summary and pdf doc at

 2)A brief paper that was accepted for the current Verona Conference on
 Modality at

 Thank you very much.
Ken Hughes web addresses turned out to be most valuable, because I was able
to download his thesis and the papers from there. Palmer's book I already
have. I couldnot get the papers of Chunmin Lee.
Some people wanted me to pass on the literature that I receive.
Unfortunately I can't, since I didnot get them. If I do, I will,
for sure.
If some more web addresses can be suggested, so that I can download
from there, I'll be really grateful.

 Thanx in advance .
