504    Includes bibliographical references and index 
520    "Knowledge can be expressed in language using a plethora 
       of grammatical means. Four major groups of meanings 
       related to knowledge are evidentiality: grammatical 
       expression of information source; egophoricity: 
       grammatical expression of access to knowledge; mirativity:
       grammatical expression of expectation of knowledge; and 
       epistemic modality: grammatical expression of attitude to 
       knowledge. The four groups of categories interact. Some 
       develop overtones of the others. Evidentials stand apart 
       from other means in many ways, including their 
       correlations with speech genres and social environment. 
       This essay presents a framework which connects the 
       expression of knowledge across the world's languages in a 
       coherent way, showing their dependencies and complexities,
       and pathways of historical development in various 
       scenarios, including language obsolescence"--|cProvided by
