Abstract:

This study provides a consistent description and explanation of the
syntax, the semantics and the pragmatics of Spanish mood. A major
focus of attention is the central role of the truthfunctional
categories of realis, potentialis and irrealis as parameters relevant
to mood selection in both subordinate and non-subordinate
clauses. Furthermore, a proposal is offered for a new typology of
clause-embedding predicates. The framework chosen stems from the
insight that complement-taking predicates share the property of
providing information on the set of mental processes which
characterize intentional human behavior. At the level of pragmatic
analysis, mood selection is examined from a variety of angles. Thus,
specific research is conducted within the framework of speech act
theory, relevance theory, politeness theory and the theory of Gricean
maxims.
