Linguistic Basis of the Phenomenon of Realis / Irrealis in the English and Uzbek Languages

Normurod Rasulov

Abstract: Until now, the phenomena of "realis" and "irrealis" have been interpreted in connection with the categories ofmood and modality in linguistic literature. Although these phenomena are recognized as a universal phenomenon characteristic of all languages, there are opinions that they are not fully justified from the point of view of content and meaning. The point is that the highlighted categories (mood and modal) in most cases create a false impression in terms of content and logic. Therefore, it is necessary to choose terms that correspond to the meanings of modality and inclination. A discussion of the categories of mood and modality cannot fully capture the meanings of state and situation. However, as a solution to the problem, analysis within the terms of realis/irrealis indicates the possibility of revealing the essence of the problem more fully. This paper attempts to examine the linguistic basis of the phenomenon of realis/irrealis in the English and Uzbek languages.
