Abstract

Abstract. Modality is a semantic category indicating the degree of factuality the speaker ascribes to his message. A message can be presented by its author as a statement of basic, a request or an order, or something obligatory, possible or probable but not an established fact. Modal verbs are widely used in English to express various kinds of modality. The English language is rich in modal verbs and their equivalents. As for Karakalpak language, it uses complex verbs as modal expressions, which consist of the combination of simple verbs and modal words. This paper aims to analyse these modal verbs in Modern English and their equivalents in Karakalpak. Such comparative research is significant for nowadays as this approach has the potential to make the learning of English language easier for Karakalpak speakers, while the number of people who are willing to English is only arising. Until now, no scientific work made a comparison of modality in Karakalpak and English.
