Modals and Conditionals: New and Revised Perspectives

Angelika Kratzer


The book contains new editions of a selection of author’s works on modals and conditionals: What “Must” and “Can” Must and Can Mean, The Notional Category of Modality, Partition and Revision, Conditionals, An Investigation of the Lumps of Thought, and Facts: Particulars or Information Units? All chapters have been given new introductions and were revised and updated. Some sections were completely rewritten. The result is a new book that tells a single story about the semantics of modals and conditionals, and is responsive to recent developments and controversies in the field.

Keywords: lumping, modality, conditionals, must, can, modals
