Abstract

This conceptual paper reflects on the role of ‘subjectivity’ in the analysis of the semantic domain of modality. It offers a critical review of the traditional notions of subjectivity vs. objectivity (including Lyons’ 1977), and it elaborates further on an alternative notion, labeled (inter)subjectivity, as proposed in earlier work (Nuyts 2001b; 2012). The paper spends particular attention to the question of the precise range of applicability of the category of (inter)subjectivity (which extends beyond the modal categories), and to the question of its status in a cognitive semantic theory.
