Furthermore, while varieties of all these readings are available for di when it sits in a syntactically low position, only future readings are available when it sits in a syntactically high position. We aim to account for this puzzle by combining several ingredients independently motivated in the literature: (i) event-relative circumstantial modality for event-in-progress, habitual, and a subset of future readings; (ii) metaphyisical modality for generalized future readings; (iii) the idea that syntactic height determines the type of modal anchor that projects a modal base. This study contributes to our understanding of the relation between syntactic height and modal flavor, as well as the nature of modal-aspectual interactions cross-linguistically.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:creator>Martinović, Martina</dc:creator> <dcterms:title>Modal height and modal flavor : The case of Wolof 'di'</dcterms:title> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource=""/> <dc:language>eng</dc:language> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dc:contributor>Martinović, Martina</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dcterms:issued>2018</dcterms:issued> <dcterms:isPartOf rdf:resource=""/> <dcterms:hasPart rdf:resource=""/> <dspace:hasBitstream rdf:resource=""/> <dc:creator>Bochnak, M.
