Abstract This paper investigates the interactional uses of the two Yurakaré (isolate, central Bolivia) epistemic modal markers and = ya ‘intersubjective’ and = laba ‘subjective’. While subjective = laba indicates a personal epistemic judgment of the speaker, intersubjective = ya conveys that the speaker expects the addressee to share the expressed epistemic judgment. The distributions of the two markers in interaction are argued to reflect their (inter)subjective meaning components. This demonstrates that conversational data provide important clues for investigating (inter)subjective meanings in language.
