    Abstract

    We have produced a corpus annotated for modality which amounts to approximately 20,000 words in English, French, and Italian. The annotation scheme is based on the notion of epistemic construction and virtually language-independent. The annotation is rigorously evaluated by means of a newly developed strategy based on the alignment of the entire epistemic constructions as identified and marked up two annotators. The corpus and the agreement scoring tools are publicly available.
