This paper explores how evidentiality is defi ned in recent research. It was inspired by the recent publication of The Oxford Handbook of Evidentiality and several other volumes, which provide a rich body of new material. The defi nition (or rather demarcation) of evidentiality encompasses both morphosyntactic and semantic parameters. I will address criteria for the distinction of dedicated grammatical evidentials, and survey the values distinguished in evidentiality’s semantic domain. In addition, I discuss deictic views of evidentiality, which seem a fruitful approach to the study of evidentials in context.
