Assertion and Speaker's Intention: A Pragmatically Based Account of Mood in Spanish.
Mejias-Bikandi, Errapel
Hispania, v77 n4 p892-902 Dec 1994
Reexamines a claim that the indicative is the mood of assertion and the subjunctive that of nonassertion. The article discusses counterexamples to this claim and proposes an alternative analysis. The discussion argues that understanding the pragmatic context of an utterance is crucial to characterizing the distribution of mood in Spanish. (17 references) (Author/CK)
