Abstract [en]

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.
