Translated title of the contribution: Detection of modal operators: first explorations in Spanish

Javier Obreque, Rogelio Nazar

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


This article presents a mixed methods approach — with emphasis on the quantitative side — for the detection and recording of modal operators. These units are defined as a broad and heterogeneous set of expressions used in written and oral communication to imprint the subjective vision of the writers/speakers in their own utterance. The present proposal is based on the exploitation of a parallel corpus to augment with quantitative means an initial list of examples obtained in a qualitative stage. The methodology is simple, effective, and language independent, although in this first test we focus on the Spanish language.
