Abstract

[Extract] EVIDENTIALITY, like all linguistic categories, is quite diverse and comes in many different formal and functional guises that pose challenges for its analysis. However, the majority of approaches agree on two points that will form the basis for this chapter: (i) semantically, evi¬dentiality states the information source, and (ii) formally, it is a grammatical category in a great number of languages (De Haan 1999; Aikhenvald 2004a: 3; Plungian 2010: 17; Brugman and Macaulay 2015). I follow the commonly assumed subdivisions within the realm of evi¬dentiality: direct versus indirect and further subdivisions of direct evidentiality into visual and other sensory evidence, and indirect into inferred versus hearsay (Willett 1988; Faller 2002: 90; Plungian 2010 ).
