After having discussed some definitions ofevidentiality and epistemic modality, I will concentrate upon the maincharacteristics of the Tibetic Evidential-Epistemic systems, which are amongthe most complex E-E systems attested in the World. The central notion ofaccess to information will be discussed in detail. I will then address the categoryof egophoric, its status and its relationship with sensory markers (sensory andendopathic) in Common Tibetan, as well as some typological features ofegophoric markers in other Tibetic languages.
