Epistemic adverbs that can/cannot be embedded under imperatives
Proceedings of the Linguistic Society of America
This paper analyzes why certain epistemic adverbs are/are not embeddable under imperatives, by adopting Kaufmann's (2012) modal analysis of imperatives and the assumption that epistemic modal bases are closed. The embeddable adverb is a modal modifier (Anand & Brasoveanu 2009) that expands the quantificational domain of the modal co-occurring with it, but the unembeddable one is a pure epistemic modal whose semantics does not involve an ordering source as in von Fintel & Gillies (2010).doi:10.3765/plsa.v4i1.4521 fatcat:tlnraudttnd6fdpjptqvgo5suy
