    Arrow Semantics

    Dear Teacher,
    I'll be glad to have this question answered:
    What is the difference between modality and modulation?
    Thanks

    What's the context, the sentences they sit in?

    Modality
    a) In linguistics - a speaker's attidute to reality.
    b) In psychology - a way of perception (visual, tactile, etc)

    Modulation
    about sounds, waves etc. - a change of state in accordance with some law.
