Event description

Description

The meanings associated with modalities typically concern notions such as the perceived truth or likelihood of events, orders, suggestions, wishes, intentions, necessity, obligation, moral desirability, politeness, etc. They are extremely subtle, highly frequent and clearly play a key role in human communication.

Translating modalities is all the more demanding since equivalent meanings are conveyed in languages through widely differing methods (moods, modal verbs, particles, syntax, lexical solutions, intonation, etc.).

The purpose of this one-day workshop is to provide a generic and jargon-free framework to help understand, explore and translate modalities across languages.
