Abstract:

The paper focuses on the usages of three modal verbs in present tense: can, want and have to in two registers of the public politicians’ speech: interviews and parliament speech. The behavior of these verbs is considered within two aspects: the frequency of present verb wordforms in both registers and their collocations in the right context.
