As mentioned in the preface, “The semantics of evidentials” elaborates on Sarah E. Murray’s [2010] PhD thesis “Evidentiality and the structure of speech acts”. The monograph proposes “a new semantics of evidentials”, which should be understood as an update of the formal semantic approach to evidentiality. It appeared as volume 9 of “The Oxford Studies in Semantics and Pragmatics”, a series of more specialized studies parallel to “The Surveys” series.
