Abstract: In this paper, I have tried to show that the meanings of Modern Norwegian modal verbs may best be described in terms of gradable scales (clines) both with respect to epistemic and non-epistemic modality. Epistemic modality deals with degree of commitment; Deontic modality deals with the degree of moral desirability; Dynamic modality deals with the degree of readiness. The use of such gradable scales (clines) enables us to draw a semantic map which adequately covers the relevant semantic area - and to make some hypotheses about the diachronic development of the meanings of the Norwegian modal verbs
