A wide range of notions are grammaticalized as moods in Turkic languages. This paper deals with Turkic moods expressing volition. Turkic languages possess different grammatical moods to express volition, primarily the imperative, voluntative, optative and hypothetic (conditional) moods, indicating volitive, directive and commissive notions. The markers of these categories and their usages in different Turkic languages are briefly discussed in a comparative perspective. Moreover, modal facets of the aorist and particles accompanying volitional moods are presented.
