[Extract] This volume contains thirteen chapters, all relating to the expression of perception (seeing and hearing), and information source in a selection of European languages. The past decade has seen a surge of interest in epistemology, evidentiality, and other grammatical, and also lexical, devices related to the expression of information source, and attitudes to information (see a comprehensive bibliography in Aikhenvald 2011). The ways in which speakers of different languages express the source of knowledge, and their attitudes to it, are among what can be called 'fashionable' issues in modern linguistics. Publication of this volume fits in with this trend.
