The parameters of the parametrized modal operators [p] and \Diamondp usually represent agents (in the epistemic interpretation) or actions (in the dynamic logic interpretation) or the like. In this paper the application of the idea of parametrized modal operators is extended in two ways: First of all a modified neighbourhood semantics is defined which permits among others the interpretation of the parameters as probability values. A formula [.5]F may for example express the fact that in at least 50% of all cases (worlds) F holds. These probability values can be numbers, qualitative descriptions and even arbitrary terms. Secondly a general theory of the parameters and in particular of the characteristic operations on the parameters is developed which unifies for example the multiplication of numbers in the probabilistic interpretation of the parameters and the sequencing of actions in the dynamic logic interpretation.
