Abstract

The aim of the research is to clarify the scope of modal semantics of adverbial modality markers in modern English mathematical discourse at the subject-propositional level. Adverbial markers of modality in modern English mathematical discourse determine the degree of validity of the derived knowledge. Low frequency of their use, i.e. logically (7%), formally (5.5%), generally (3%), indeed (2%), possibly (1.5%), similarly (1.3%), alternatively (1.2%), geometrically 1.1%), roughly (0.5%), obviously (0.3%) is explained by the high degree of objective formalization of scientific mathematical discourse. The conducted quantitative analysis of frequency provides grounds for hypothetical assumption of the peripheral subjective-relative value of adverbial modality markers in mathematical discourse through the coverage of the mode of proposition inference and provability. At the same time, the semantic-pragmatic aspect of adverbial modality markers of modern English mathematical discourse allows to determine the subjective-relative meaning, as there is a relevant selection of adverbial modal operator mode of proposition as derived knowledge.
