The relationship between language and conceptualization remains one of the major puzzles in language research. This monograph addresses this issue by means of an in depth corpus based and experimental investigation of the major types of expressions of epistemic modality in Dutch, German and English. By adopting a systematic functional orientation, the book explains a whole range of peculiarities of epistemic expression forms (synchronically and diachronically), and it offers a clear perspective on which cognitive systems are needed to get from the concept of epistemic modality to its linguistic expression. On that basis the author postulates a sophisticated, layered view of human conceptualization. This book is of interest both to scholars working on modality and related semantic dimensions, and to the interdisciplinary field of researchers concerned with the cognitive systems involved in language use.

Table of Contents
“[...] making a no-small contribution to helping us better understand linguistic structure and processing per se and more important, leading us to think more and know more about human conceptualizations.”
“[...] a strong case for the existence of a cognitive infrastructure for language use and the processes involved in shaping linguistic structures.”
“[...] a most valuable reading for those interested in (epistemic) modality and its linguistic expression, or in better understanding of the cognitive framework underlying, among others, the use of language.”
“Nuyts’ research effort might well be called internally functionalist because ‘the relationship question’ (i.e., the one holding between thought and language) is depicted in connection with EM (its cognitive and pragmatic aspects as a bilateral one – both dimensions are mutually interdependent. Cognitive linguistics is in much need of empirical research that is specifically concerned with the relevance of cognitive linguistics for gaining indispensable insights into both language structure and actual linguistic processing. Nuyts’ book achieves a lot in this respect. It contains extremely useful data as well as stimulating, challenging, extraordinarily sound ideas on the cross-linguistic and theoretical study of modality. Also, ‘conceptual cognitive functions’(Lakoff and Johnson 1999: 498) are seriously discussed within a truly cognitive functional grammar. The book is bound to prove an invaluable and significant contribution to an integrated cognitive-linguistic theory of language and language use.”
