The book describes the basic concepts and types of modality found in Bengali, classifies them and concurrently shows through which linguistic means the individual modal domains are expressed in Bengali within socio-cultural environment. Close attention in particular is paid to the event modality, but the propositional (epistemic) modality is also considered. The analysis presents both similarities and differences in the expression of this cross-linguistic semantic category between Bengali and other languages.
