Abstract:

This volume presents a systematic and comprehensive analysis of the
Spanish evidential semi-auxiliaries parecer and resultar, the modal
constructions with amenazar and prometer, and the modal auxiliaries
poder, deber and tener que. These verbs have never been considered
together in a global approach that transcends the classical "verbal
periphrases" model.

The book proposes a cognitive-functional account of evidentiality and
modality in Spanish with special attention to subjectivity and
grounding.
The theoretical reflection relies on empirical evidence of two sorts:
synchronic and diachronic corpus-analyses alternate with tests that
measure
the semantic and pragmatic compatibility of the evidential and
epistemic constructions with specific sentences. Following the
assumption that
linguistic forms are determined by their meaning, the array of
constructions that characterizes the different verbs justifies their
grouping in three pairs of (semi-)auxiliaries: parecer vs resultar,
amenazar vs prometer and poder vs deber/tener que. The distributional
differences observed in the corpus are further shown to correlate with
different degrees of grammaticalization.

Primarily intended for scholars working in the field of Spanish
functional linguistics, the monograph is also relevant for
grammaticalization studies
and for cognitive-semantic research at large. Given its combined
theoretical and applied character, the volume is also of interest to
anyone
concerned with syntactic processes, lexical semantics or the wider
area of discourse analysis and pragmatics.
