Abstract:The thesis sets out to investigate modality, which has been recognised as a central linguistic feature used for the expression of opinions and attitudes and thus also for establishing a dialogic relationship between the writer and reader. Following more recent, text-type oriented approaches to modality, which have recognised the importance of both genre- and discipline-specific conventions, the analysis aims to investigate modal verb use in different text types in logistics. Building on the finding that academic discourse is characterised by both objective (dynamic) and subjective (epistemic and deontic) presentation of claims it aims to establish to what extent the ratio between the two reflects genre- and discipline-specific use. The study is based on a combination of quantitative and qualitative (semantic) analysis, the results of which show that modal verb use in the analysed text types is characterised by a marked dichotomy between dynamic on the one side and epistemic and deontic use on the other, which, at least to some extent, could be related to the interdisciplinary nature of logistics. Furthermore, the analysed texts also show differences in the overall proportions of dynamic, epistemic and deontic use, which could be linked to the genre-specific style of each text type.

Title:Modalni odnosi v besedilnih vrstah na področju logistike
Abstract:Doktorska disertacija je namenjena raziskavi modalnosti kot eni izmed osrednjih jezikovnih sredstev za izražanje stališč in odnosa do predstavljene vsebine in s tem tudi za vzpostavitev dialoškega odnosa med avtorjem besedila in bralci. Skladno s spoznanji sodobnejših, v besedilo usmerjenih, pristopov, da je za rabo modalnih glagolov značilna tako za žanr kot tudi za disciplino specifična raba, se raziskava osredinja na analizo modalnih glagolov v izbranih besedilnih vrstah v logistiki. Izhajajoč iz spoznanja, da znanstveni diskurz poleg tradicionalno prepoznane objektivnosti pomembno zaznamuje tudi bolj subjektivno oziroma dialoško naravnan ton, raziskava pri tem kot osrednji cilj zasleduje odgovor na vprašanje, v kolikšni meri razmerje med objektivnim (dinamičnim) ter subjektivnim (epistemičnim in deontičnim) poročanjem odraža za žanr in disciplino specifično rabo. Študija pri tem uporabi kombinacijo kvantitativne in kvalitativne (semantične) analize, rezultati katere pri vseh besedilih pokažejo izrazito dihotomijo med dinamičnim na eni strani ter epistemičnim in deontičnim pomenom na drugi. Omenjena dihotomija vsaj delno sovpada z interdisciplinarno naravo logistike. Analizirana besedila pokažejo še nekatere druge razlike, in sicer relativno pogosto deontično rabo v raziskovalnih člankih, relativno pogosto epistemično rabo v znanstveni monografiji ter nekoliko višjo dinamično rabo v strokovnem priročniku. Le-te lahko vsaj delno pripišemo za žanr specifični rabi.
