Title: Mood at the Interface
Written By: Josep F. Quer
Series Title: LOT International Series 1. UiL OTS dissertation
Description:

Mood at the interface offers a unified study of the grammatical contribution of mood in the whole spectrum of subordination. The basic hypothesis of the work is that indicative/subjunctive alternations constitute the overt marking of a shift in the model where a proposition is evaluated. It is shown that such an account in terms of mood shift succeeds in providing a wide empirical coverage for this rather murky domain and supplies a strong argument for the interaction of this verbal category with the different components of the grammar. The study concentrates on Romance languages, with special emphasis on Catalan and Spanish.
