The sensory evidential mood (abbreviated SENS) is an epistemic grammatical mood, or group of moods, found in some languages, that indicates that the utterance is based on what the speaker has seen with their own eyes, or heard with their own ears. In some languages having such moods, there are multiple sensory evidential moods, distinguished from one another based on what sense this sensory experience was from, e.g. sight v.s. hearing.[1]
