On the Thematic Nature of the Subjunctive in the Romance Languages.
Gerzymisch-Arbogast, Heidrun
IRAL, v31 n2 p113-28 May 1993
A theoretical discussion is offered on whether the subjunctive in the Romance languages is by nature thematic, as suggested in previous studies. English and Spanish samples are used to test the hypothesis; one conclusion is that the subjunctive seems to offer speaker-related information and may express the intensity of the speaker's involvement.
