    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    This edited volume brings together work on the evidential systems of
    Tibetan languages. This includes diachronic research, synchronic
    description of systems in individual Tibetan varieties and papers
    addressing broader theoretical or typological questions. Evidentiality in
    Tibetan languages interacts with other features of modality,
    interactional context and speaker knowledge states in ways that provide
    important perspectives for typologists and our general understanding of
    evidential systems. This book provides the first sustained attempt to
    capture this complexity and diversity from both a synchronic and
    diachronic perspective.
