This book deals with epistemic expressions: the linguistic means we have for expressing our degree of certainty about and our type of evidence for propositions about the world.

Kasper Boye, University of Copenhagen, Denmark.

Rezensionen
"Boye s work is a valuable addition to the literature on epistemic meaning - he is very clear about his thesis and goals and is careful to show how each is demonstrated and met."
Robert Earl LaBarge in: Linguist List 24.1827

"This excellent book is an enormous step forward toward a comprehensive theory of propositional marking and of epistemicity. For these fields, it sets standards of clarity and succinctness of argumentation. Therefore, its natural place is among the standard books on these subject matters."
Björn Wiemer in: Studies in Language 37:2
