Pragmatic Explanations for Expressing Obligations of the Agent referred to in Hindi

Abstract : Hindi possesses three constructions of similar syntactic nature − with an agent referred to, an infinitival verb form and one of three modal markers − to express three kinds of deontic modality. These overtly similar constructions are, however, employed by the speaker to achieve different pragmatic goals. Their individual meanings derive from the various pragmatic strategies involved and from the type of mutual knowledge and beliefs shared by speaker and addressee. This paper is an attempt to describe these strategies in a formal way.
