The coursebook is designed for senior undergraduate and postgraduate students of linguistics. It focuses on the attitudinal and epistemic dimensions of the category of evaluation. The coursebook comprises two parts, each consisting of two units. Part one introduces the attitudinal dimension of evaluation by drawing on the frameworks for attitudinal stance and Appraisal. Part two presents the epistemic dimension of evaluation by providing the realisations and illustration of the categories of epistemic modality and evidentiality. Each unit of the coursebook illustrates the categories discussed and is followed by a set of tasks.
