Modality and Ideology in Translated Political Texts

Description:

This paper explores the relationship/s between modality and ideology in two versions of the same political text: one in Arabic, the other, a translation of it into English. The main argument springs from the premise that the speakerís choice of modal expressions signals both the degree and type of involvement a speaker has in the content of her/his message, and consequently her/his ideological stance/s.
