This book offers a new and in-depth analysis of English conditional sentences. Dancygier classifies conditional constructions according to time-reference and modality. She shows how the basic meaning parameters of conditionality correlate to formal parameters of the linguistic constructions that are used to express them. Focused on English, the study also provides a framework that can be extended to a broad range of grammatical phenomena in many other languages.
