It is hereby highly recommended Johan Van Der Auwera,Language vol. 84, No.1, 2008 ...marks a major advance in the study of evidentiality ... Aikenvald has opened the floor for discussion, and everyone with an interest in this area can only appreciate this. Heiko Narrog, SKY journal of Linguistics ...a truly superb example of a cross-linguistic survey of a grammatical category... This book belongs in every linguistics library. Edward J Vajda, Western Washington University ...an impressive typological survey of evidentiality systems in the world's languages... With its numerous carefully glossed example sentences and its various summarizing tables, Aikhenvald's book opens up a fascinating aspect of natural language grammar to future systematic enquiry. The Year's Works in English Studies The most important current resource for anyone interested in the nature and typology of evidentials. Margaret Speas, University of Massachusetts
