Definition:

Realis modality is a modality that connotes the factuality of a proposition. In its broad usage, the term realis is approximately equivalent in meaning to the term indicative, which in turn is used, narrowly, as a synonym to declarative. [SIL International 2004]


Usage Notes

Examples
Language Code: ami Realis encodes that the speaker is offering and unqualified statement of fact. The term 'realis' is synonymous with the term 'indicative' and therefore 'declarative.'
