Japanese Mood and Modality in Systemic Functional Linguistics (Not in series)

Buy
This book is an anthology of four papers that offers a cross-linguistic and inter- disciplinary exploration of modality within systemic functional linguistics (SFL). Drawing upon the broad SFL notion of modality that refers to the intermediate degrees between the positive and negative poles, the individual papers probe into the modality systems in English and Japanese. The papers cover issues such as the conceptual nature of modality in both languages, the characterization of modula- tion in Japanese, the trans-grammatical aspects of modality in relation to mood and grammatical metaphor in both languages, and the modality uses and pragmatic impairment by individuals with a developmental disorder from a neurocognitive perspective.

Chapter 2 develops a descriptive framework of modulation in Japanese from the perspective of Systemic Functional Linguistics (SFL). Iimura’s work sets out to explicate main contributions to the area of modality in traditional Japanese lin- guistics (Narrog 2009, 2014; Masuoka 2007), including typological studies (Palmer 2001). It emerges that despite the attention given by many scholars, there still re- mains some diversity regarding the definition of mood and modality, the inter- relation between the two systems, and the range of forms to be included in each system. It is also confirmed that the findings in many studies outside SFL tend to be confined to the notional analysis of modality and modal expressions with little attention to text analysis.

Fracking: The Operations and Environmental Consequences of Hydraulic Fracturing (Energy Sustainability)
Fracking: The Operations and Environmental Consequences of Hydraulic Fracturing (Energy Sustainability)
Hydraulic fracturing (also known as fracking, fracing, or worse) of rock deep beneath the surface to release petroleum product has become a contentious subject across the globe. This practice is not to be confused with drilling or extraction. Fracking is the process of using fluid power to fracture rock to release gas (and...
Semantic Role Labeling (Synthesis Lectures on Human Language Technologies)
Semantic Role Labeling (Synthesis Lectures on Human Language Technologies)

Analysis of semantic relations and predicate-argument structure is one of the core pieces of any system for natural language understanding. This field has a long history, but has also undergone significant change in recent years. The advent of systematically defined resources for semantic structures has enabled the creation of large corpora...


Modeling Our World: The ESRI Guide to Geodatabase Design
Modeling Our World: The ESRI Guide to Geodatabase Design
All geographic information systems (GIS) are built using formal models that describe how things are located in space. A formal model is an abstract and well-defined system of concepts. It defines the vocabulary that we can use to describe and reason about things. A geographic data model defines the vocabulary for describing and reasoning...
