Abstract
Combinations of performative deontic, epistemic and evidential expressions in a clause appear to be very rare in language. This article presents facts to this effect on the basis of Dutch corpus data, and attempts to explain them. The aim is to contribute to the understanding of the cognitive status of the semantic notions involved, and more generally of the phenomenon called tense-aspect-modality marking or the qualification of states of affairs in language. In particular, the aim is to contribute to current theorizing on the hierarchical nature of qualifications and the position of this hierarchical system in a cognitive language model.
