Epistemic and Dynamic Possibility (can and may) in English and Japanese Medical Texts (a corpus-based contrastive study)

Jason Khoh
Nihon University School of Medicine

16 September 2009


In this presentation Jason Khoh detailed a paper he wrote last year on a contrastive analysis of original English medical texts against their Japanese translations in order to better understand the functions of both epistemic and dynamic possibility ('can' and 'may') in both languages and specifically in relation to medical texts.

The speaker has kindly provided the slides of his presentation (in PDF format).
