Sounds Fascinating

By J. C. Wells

How do you pronounce biopic, synod, and Breughel? - and why? Do our cake and archaic sound the same? Where does the stress go in stalagmite? What's odd about the word epergne? As a finale, the author writes a letter to his 16-year-old self.

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

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.
