Edited by Tyler Peterson and Uli Sauerland
The collection of papers in ‘Evidence from Evidentials’, published as UBCWPL Volume 28, represents the convergence of two research communities who had the common goal of exploring different aspects of the syntax, the semantics, and the pragmatics of evidentiality. In the fall of 2007, a research seminar focusing on the cross-linguistic typology of evidentials was held at UBC organized by Rose-Marie Dechaine. In the spring of 2008, GLOW hosted a workshop organized by Uli Sauerland at the University of Newcastle on the semantics of evidentials, with the broad goal of understanding and explaining what kind of category ‘evidentiality’ is. This volume presents a selection of papers from both the seminar and the workshop
