Modal Operators Cresswell II 148
Modal Operator/MO/Montague/Cresswell: (Montague 1974, 286-302): Proof that modal operators are not predicates of sentences. (Also Anderson 1983).
SkyrmsVsMontague: (1978): denies the importance of this result. There would surely be a meaning in which modal operators could be given a metaphorical semantics.
VsSkyrms/Cresswell: for this he pays the price of a very strict type hierarchy.
