Abstract
This is a talk about sub-lexical modality illustrated with transfer of possession verbs. I gave this talk for the first time at the Little v Conference in Leiden on October 6, 2013, and then again at the Conference on Modality Across Categories in Barcelona on November 5, 2015. I also presented this material in lectures at the Hebrew University in Jerusalem in November 2015, and in my seminar at UMass Amherst in the Spring of 2016.
